    By the way: this is just an example of inconsistent capital use, I encouter this throughout the language files.

    I know that there’s a button, don’t know if everyone sees it right away before starting to search for it in the menu (but that might’ve just been me… ;)).

    Thx for the quick response!

    I looked at http://demo.orocrm.com/#url=/contact/update/103, but I don’t see a photo/avatar field anywhere? Or should it work by just using an e-mail address that’s linked to a gravatar?

    The above was aimed at Contacts, but you can also use this for Accounts: many companies have LinkedIn or Twitter profiles so you can pull in data like number of employees, number of followers, company description, website URL…

    Oh, correction: too close together for UL lists, too far apart for OL lists ;)

    oh, as an addition:

    Can the extension be encrypted (it’s not my purpose)?
    Yes, if you also provide source code

    that is if you license it OSL, otherwise do as you want

    What if I change the code and want to share it publicly or privately?
    Publicly it needs to be OSL, privately doesn’t matter, but if it’s good it probably doesn’t stay private for long after you share it .

    Only if you talk about the OroCRM code, for an extension you can do as you want.

    Just discussed this with Jary actually and also seen this discussion a lot in the Magento (also OSL) and Joomla (GPL) community so I’ll give it a try (also not a license specialist here…).

    As far as I can find out (also from online search) is that the MIT license basically allows you to do anything with the code what you want, OSL has a bit more restrictions (still quite free, but more restrictive than the MIT license but less restrictive for instance to the GPL).

    Main differences:

    • MIT allows you to release changes under a different license (OSL does not)
    • MIT has no copyleft requirements (OSL does)
    • MIT is compatible with the GPL license (OSL is not)

    This part from Wikipedia probably also explains a lot about OSL:

    • Derivative Works must be distributed under the same license.
    • Covered works that are distributed must be accompanied by the source code, or access to it made available.
    • No restrictions on charging money for programs covered by the license, but source code must be included or made available for a reasonable fee.
    • Covered works that are distributed must include a verbatim copy of the license.
    • Distribution implies (but does not explicitly state) a royalty-free license for any patents embodied in the software.

    Looking at what happens at Magento, I see both free and paid extensions provided and also extensions that are encrypted. But when I read “but source code must be included or made available for a reasonable fee” encryption is possible and allowed, but you should provide the code (making encryption quite useless in most cases probably). As far as I know, those Magento extension builders don’t provide the source and also getting a bad reputation about it.

    So:
    I mean if I do an extension for OroCRM, it must be also OSL?
    Nope, anything you want (Yoav confirmed it ;))

    Can the extension be encrypted (it’s not my purpose)?
    Yes, if you also provide source code :)

    What if I change the code and want to share it publicly or privately?
    Publicly it needs to be OSL, privately doesn’t matter, but if it’s good it probably doesn’t stay private for long after you share it ;).
