Igor, see my answers below.

Dear community,

First of all, thanks to all of you who have answered to our email - for your support, concrete responses and expressed readiness to contribute to this project. We are very happy to see that there is a real need for a tool such as Scrummer.

The situation is much clearer to us now after we`ve got the answers, so let me sum it up quickly:

  • It will be free with LGPLv3 license in use

  • There is a room for a separate repo under OCA umbrella

  • We have to sign the CLA (I believe entity CLA version)

Both ECLA and ICLA for your individual team mermbers.
  • We will be steering and maintaining the further project development

We did have an internal discussion based on all of your answers, where a couple of new questions and ambiguities have arisen and we would appreciate your guidance on this as well:

  1. We are still discussing @Daniel proposal of renaming the project to project-agile (practical pros and cons). Was this name proposal your idea to help us keep the brand Scrummer for ourselves? You said that every module under OCA should be unbranded, what exactly does this mean?
The idea is that if OCA is to use a brand, it should own it. And you might prefer not to give it to OCA,.. or you do?

  1. Also, could this repo/project be called oca/odoo-agile, or just oca/agile instead of oca/project-agile?
In my opinion it is not enough specific. Many things can be agile, besides project management. So an outsider looking into OCA may be confused.

Perhaps we should use OCA/project-scrum, which is specific to this agile meyhodology. 
  1. We understand that we would steer and maintain the project, but we are not sure about the exact duties and rights we would have. Given that the project is new and initiated by us, we assume that we would form the initial PSC for the project. Is that right? 
In my opinion  you should join the more generic Project PSC, and maintain both OCA/project and OCA/project-agile. See more about the PSC here:

In a practical sense PSC can merge PR's or reject them, etc.
  1. Regarding your proposal that some of the project modules (ie. project-workflow) end up in the different repo (ie. oca/project), what happens if a module from OCA/project gets changed in the way that breaks the compatibility with the Scrummer? How is that regulated then? Basically, that is the only problem I see in this proposal which makes sense to me fully from the overall code organization perspective.

In my opinion the Project PSC members should maintain both. So you can see to it that there are no conflicts.

Thanks a lot to everyone. We would like this first step to be done properly, so we apologize for being a pain in the neck. :)
