Rules Elibility to Front page on dolistore

Proposal : Only modules eligible to Front page on Dolistore must fullfill these criteria

 - with a link to documentation
 - from a Dolibarr Preferred Partner
 - maximum ok 10 modules by partner
 - only the one compatible with last stable Dolibarr version
 - only one version per module (as functionnal feature module not based on named)
 - an exception can be done for free modules that are really interesting

=> Need to add 2 specific fields on module cards for editors to fill : documentation link => TODO (2) Nicolas: Must complete the wiki page about rule of dolistore with a new chapter


Regis has delivered the work to enhance the Dolistore platform. The 2 main enhancement are :

   - A feature to send a message to the editor of the module to warm it when a module is disabled
   - A new field "support" is available and is mandatory when the price is > 0

We need to test and publish them in production => TODO (1) Laurent

Make proposal for specification on Dolibarr e-Commerce

=> GIFF to organize to have workshops and define the specification for this project => Goal is to have a specification about an e-commerce module in Dolibarr and to replace the Dolistore website (currently on Prestashop) => A consultation will be made to seek for developers to implement this module based on the specification

Note by LDR: Step by step contribution may be more efficient than GIFF. This is the next step: A step to go to walk toward the eCommerce into Dolibarr is to create a template of the existing DoliStore, into the Dolibarr CMS (header, menu, terms of service, contact, basket, one page for a product..., no need for dynamic page working, just static template with content as it is on Dolistore).
