Foundation valid a budget for study the exemption "Retenue de fond avant revertion" that is used by the DoliStore process.

Preferred partner

- Response message type to define => TODO (3) Maxime

- Link for preferred partners, with a page that link to Dolibarr => Counter of error is available => Sending Mail for Partners with too many errors => Process TODO once a month

- When the error counter reaches 5, we send a first email alert to indicate that the Dolibarr link is missing on the website
- When the error counter reaches 10, we send a second email alert to indicate that the Dolibarr link is missing on the website and that the partnership will be canceled next month
 - When the error counter reaches 15, we send an email to indicate that the partnership is cancelled

- Reflexion around the foundation management (workshops, community manager, communication, ...) => Some people propose to be invest in the fundation with specifics roles

- Reflexion about having someone (employee by the foundation ?) to deal with many tasks for the foundation

=> TODO (1) Philippe Scofoni Creation of a task list to define what missions can be done by this person

=> Another idea is to have someone dedicated to the foundation communication, managed by Inovea with a study contract. Goal is to organize and structure the foundation communication, and to hire the person by the foundation at the end of the study contract. Cost during the study contract would be invoiced by Inovea to the foundation. Next step is for Inovea to present a student and an organization project.

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 functional feature module not based on named)
 - an exception can be done for free modules that are really interesting

=> Need to add 1 specific field on module cards for editors to fill : documentation link

=> TODO (1) ATM and Inovea: They must remove some modules on home page and keep only 10 of them to follow the new rules.


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 (2) 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).
