  • Use GitBug as maintenance tools (
  Take task and bug from doliforge to github
  Advantage : fully integrated to devtools

=> May be one day github will be a paid system per bug or task ... => Question: Is there a way to migrate existing content into github ? => GitHub contains a bug tracker but no tracker feature => GitHub does not contain important features into tracker like priority/module/criticality, task opened to external developer, ...

In :

  • A) Before working on any other service/enhancement that the foundation can do/offer, we should enhance automation of already existing tool.

For example, we should: - create a module to sync permission of unix account onto dolibarr foundation servers from dolibarr foundation manager. - upgrade tools on server (joomla, doliforge, ...) - automation of payment when a subscription is renewed

   Progress ? 

  • Dolibarr ERP & CRM © 2003-2012 - Gestion commerciale ou associative. In footer. Is dolibarr a deposed trademark ?

In some countries in europe, dolibarr was registered by some companies. Except for France where the trademark was registered by Laurent Destailleur as president of Dolibarr Foundation. So for france, there is no need to vote to transfer trademark from nltechno company because trademark is not owned by any company (nor nltechno nor any other). For other countries, I don't know how to find which companies has bought the trademark in their country (I know german community did it, and i think 2byte did it for spain, but i don't think it's a good idea to ask them to cease trademark to someone else than them, because they bought the trademark to protect project since they want to invest on dolibarr and wanted to be sure to not loose money because of someone doing something else with the trademark. However, what could be a good idea is to launch an action to let the foundation buy trademark for "europe" (OHMI) or work (OMPI) (for countries where no companies has already buy it). For europe, it cost 1000 euros + a laywercalled "mandataire" if we want to be sure to do things correctly , i think 3000 euros should be ok.

=> Vote trademark protection for Europe in the name of moral entity of Dolibarr fundation with a limit for budget (I suggest ok if <= 3000 euros for ten years)

  • B) Someone to work onto domain name transfer (from Regis to Dolibarr foundation) ?
   To discuss
  • C) Draft of Dolibarr integrator label
    => Difficulté d'évaluer le serieux des potentiels candidats... Idée: différencier des échelons 

=> The management of preferred partner program is already a program that consume a lot of time, difficult to find for the foundation. Having a more complex system will increase the problem. It is better to do less correctly that engaging into doing more without doing it correctly. Ok to do so, but only when point A will be finished.

    Par exemple dans les partenaire cloud privilégié alors que A3sys n'est pas Preferred Partner

=> n'est pas dans les partenaires privilégiés, mais juste dans la liste des sociétés qui se sont déclarées. Seul les preferred partner sont privilégiés (ajoutés en premier). La question est-elle "faut-il supprimer le référencement de toute société qui n'est pas Prefered Partner" ? Je pense que non, car cela empeche le développement de l'echosystem et toute société ne commence pas directement dans dolibarr en étant directement prefered partner.

    => To discuss 
   Task to do by Florian henry => Resend CGV to DoliStore sellers, with motivation letters to keep module up to date and new Dolistore module validation rules (done ?)

  • D) Doliforge "Demande de promotion d'annonce sur Doliforge" process
   To discuss 
  • E) Vendre 1-2 espaces annonces pub sur sites Dolibarr pour des services autour de Dolibarr en plus de la pub google (qui promeut les autres ERP...)
  To discuss next time (part solved by point on advertising budget)

=> This need to develop tools to manage this: following advertisers, payments, documentations, juridical rules, etc. Who is ok to work on this ?

  • New joomla progress ?

=> Who is ready to work on this ? => Define a bounty by the foundation to work on this ?

  • Explain new external1/external2... feature

=> I removed part about coding/development, because this status of the foundation is not to define this. The foundation goal is limited develop (as "promoting" not as "coding") Dolibarr. Coding is goal of development team (so coding discussion would be at good place into a devcamp but not into dolibarr foundation meeting). This must appears into task tracker instead...

* Road map :
Target 3.5 : 
Clean all class (must respect CRUD with user in parameters
Extrafield and multicompany feature
Replace all $_POST/$_GET by GETPOST
Add webservice as module extention as done for dictionnary
Clean all class (must respect CRUD with user in parameters)
    Vérifier qu'il y a des transactions partout où il faut (insert update, delete)
Normalized usage of setEventMessage instead of dol_msg_print...
    Modules CRM : Commercial (gestion d'affaires / opportunités), Marketing (Campagnes)
    Intégration d'e-mails automatique (envoyés / reçu)
    Intégration téléphonie
    Gestion de production
    Gestion de stock => Réservation de stock, et gestion des retours échanges
    Gestion des déclinaisons produits
  • Migrate Kunema to phpBB ?

=> Why ? Kunena works great on It is bugged on but because exotic modules were installed onto instance (in fact all joomla is bugged with .fr). Using standard joomla version, should solve the problem.
