OpenERP - Open Upgrade

Following a tweet I discovered this initiative

To be clear, the migration service from OpenERP is cheap and without competition. Migration of ERP at a fix low price remains unique. The value of OpenERP enterprise is clear: fixed price and increased functionality every year. Unique.

However this paid services might be a problem for very small business, non-profit and verticalisation market (more open-object than openerp). It is one of the reason some people turn to Tryton (an- openerp-fork-that-may-one-day-have-a-web-client-but-web-is-not-important-because-we-have-gtk).

The fact custom modules are not part of the migration per say (or you pay more to get them converted/migrated) leave anyway an area for an alternate market.

I don't expect this to be commercial ready, but can be an help for people ready to spend some time in custom migration !

Please note... I haven't spend a second looking at this migration code... just in case ! So don't be foolish and try migrating your live erp.

Using nginx as a proxy to gunicorn / openerp

Following the by now best practices with 6.1, I am switching my prod and demo configruation to gunicorn. 
However, it is also recommended to setup a front-end to your server in order to make if faster and more robust.
Installing nginx on Ubuntu is easy as :
sudo apt-get nginx

setting up the server to proxy the gunicorn/ openerp, requires to add a site configuration in nginx. Here is a minimal version (it works but it contains no safety nor optimisation) :
server {
  listen 80;
  location / {
    proxy_pass http://localhost:8069;

See for more info !

Precise Pengolin - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Yesterday, I installed side by side the new Ubuntu Desktop LT 12.04.

I am not sure I will like the new Unity desktop. What I am sure is that this is the first install of Ubuntu that works perfectly on my HP Laptop (Elitebook 8540w). Even the sleep mode, dual screen, all installed without a glitch !

Congratulation to Canonical & Welcome to Precise Pengolin.
