    Smile Poll - Sugar CRM Community Edition

    SUgar COmmunity

    I think that SugarCRM needs a community edition with all relevant patches, best mods, language files and all integrated, mantained by the users but guided by the SugarCRM staff, just like Red Had is doing with Fedora, or Suse with Open suse.

    SOme patches are amazing, other are a must, some modules try to mimic the features included in the pro versions but others are real improvements!

    My proposal is: make a community version at least with every major upgrade (4.2, 4.5 etc), with the modules voted by the community members, but I sugest at least

    -Zucker Reports
    -Teams
    -Team notices
    -Organizational CHart
    -Admin TOols
    -Optional Dropdowns
    -Resource management module
    -OpenLDAP/Active Directory Authentication

    -All languaje packs
    -best skins
    -a tool for easy translatng and upload of module translations?

    I dont think that this could hurt sales of the pro versions, but make the user base bigger

    I think it is an excellent idea - however, you are going to need a group of regulars to support it on an ongoing basis, so rounding up those people is an early priority. And also - not sure if you have license issues with these add-ons from others - you may need to go back to the authors and get their explicit OKs for this. Then lastly - where do you put it - I guess it becomes a project at SugarForge?

    Thanks for the answer!
    I think that it must be in SugarForge, just like the bitrock installers.
    About the license issue, I have no clue, maybe someone can enlighten me?
    about the support and regular mantainers: maybe the module programmers will have a better testbed, with other modules loaded already, so when deploying a version the mantainer will just patch the package... dont'know.
    maybe sugarcrm can lend a programmer for the task every majer revision.

    I think this is a great idea, and I hope it gets off the ground. Let's keep this idea visible to the community.

    I agree completely with your choice of module to include.

    Best,
    Rick
