At B2CK, we have a frequent request from leads to give references of Tryton in the same field.
So we think it will be great if the Foundation could collect such information and share it (I think it fit with the promotion mission).
I think we could add a cron task in standard trytond. This task will be activated as opt-in using the configuration wizard. The task will send to the Foundation server periodically (once per month) this information:
- Name (required)
- Contact email (required) + publish option
- Country (optional)
- Description (optional)
- Version (optional)
- List of activated modules (optional)
- Number of users (optional)
The Foundation server will verify the email by sending a verification URL (like web_user module).
Once validated the information will be published on www.tryton.org (with search toolbar). If the data are not updated after a period (e.g. 6 months), the record will be deactivated.
In order to identify the installation/database, the task will generate a unique identifier (UUID4). The Foundation server will compare it with the stored hash to allow the update.
All communication will be done with SSL. And the task should not interfere with the normal usage of Tryton.
And of course we will respect of https://discuss.tryton.org/privacy
