Wie man offizieller Entwickler wird

In the galaxy of the Dolibarr project, there are several actors with different levels / grades. The number of developers is important so contributions and changes must be controlled and validated (both for functional needs and for coding). For this reason, the write access on the source (GIT) is limited and governed by an organization that is described in the following. Each developer has a grade depending on seniority and the past. The level of authorization of a person on the project increases with the stages of promotion in grade.

The course of a Dolibarr developer passes through these steps, which are classified by a title familiar to fans of science fiction. Here are the steps. It is important to understand that this organization has the sole purpose of improving the quality of Dolibarr and it is necessary that it is rigorously used.

The ranks of contributors to the Dolibarr project, and what to do to reach this rank, are defined into page Dolibarr Project in chapter Developers roles.

Change my numbering system after start

If the new numbering system does not conflict with the old one, to change the numbering rule, just go to menu Setup - Modules - Invoice setup and choose the new numbering rule in the list.

If the new rule can create conflicts with old one, it will be necessary to rename old existing references. This can be done by a SQL request. For example, to go from numbering module Jupiter (FYYYYMM99) to Terre (FAYYMM-999), you can run the following request:

update llx_facture set facnumber=concat('FA',substr(facnumber,4,4),'-',substr(facnumber,8))
where facnumber like 'F%' and facnumber not like 'FA%';

For example, to rename references from model FAYYMM999 to Terre (FAYYMM-999), you can run the following request:

update llx_facture set facnumber=concat('FA',substr(facnumber,3,4),'-',substr(CONCAT('0000',substr(facnumber,7)),-4))
where facnumber like 'FA%' and facnumber not like '%-%';
