  Task tu purge spam is added into list of taks to do by Phillipe to moderate the forum
  • Create a subject Specifics Dev on the forums ?

  Go forward on, should be ok before launch of year
  • Use GitBug as maintenance tools

Take task and bug from doliforge to github

- Advantage : fully integrated to devtools

- Disadvantage: => 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, ... => What about DoliForge/Tuleap Partner ship ?

  Project to migrate to Tuleap Saas with communication partner ship 

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 - automationof sending pdf for subscription

   => New GCV with obligation of support if module is not free
  • D) Doliforge "Demande de promotion d'annonce sur Doliforge" process
   We did not state this point. To discuss next time (part solved by point on advertising budget).
  • 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...)

=> This need to develop tools to manage this: following advertisers, payments, documentations, juridical rules, etc.

=> LDR: I did some tests to use joomla to add and follow banners. With Joomla for distribution and Dolibarr for invoicing, we should be ready for this.
