Why should I sponsor the OCA?
The Odoo Community Association provides support for the open-source community projects. The Odoo Commnuity Association projects are characterized by a collaborative, consensus based development process, an open and pragmatic software license, and a desire to create high quality software that leads the way in its field. We consider ourselves not simply a group of projects sharing a server, but rather a community of developers and users.
The OCA provides the infrastructure for the projects - the mailing lists, code repositories, bug tracking systems, etc. These resources are maintained by a few paid contractors (as well as by large amounts of volunteer effort). This, in addition to the large costs of bandwidth and server hardware, constitutes the bulk of the expense of running the Association.
By sponsoring the OCA you show your support for our mission and help sustain a vibrant organization. Sponsorship also shows your support for Open Source and provides you the opportunity to "give back" to the community. Finally, since the OCA is non-profit organization, sponsorship provides attractive tax benefits.
Where will my sponsorship funds go?
The OCA comprises over 50 top level projects, over 250 active members, over 100 committers and countless contributors and users.
We also have the normal business operating expenses which go with any organization. These include:
- Bandwidth costs, Servers and hardware
- Legal and Accounting
- Normal office expenses
- Events and code sprints
- Marketing and PR
You can check our financial and moral reports here.
Your sponsorship will allow the OCA to meet these expenses as well as expand our capability to maintain our leadership in the developer and Open Source communities. Funding will allow us to enhance our community outreach, sponsor developer code sprints and user groups, and perform non-code related improvements to projects such as better documentation.
