Version and branch conventions followed in OpenG2P

In general, OpenG2P follows Semantic Versioning 2.0. However, there are exceptions concerning Oodo modules which follow Odoo Versioning.

Versioning is applied to the following artifacts.


Non-Odoo modules

Odoo modules

Odoo Versioning. To indicate the maturity of a version (like alpha/beta etc.) use development_status field in the file as described here.


Helm Charts

Semantic Versioning 2.0. See more details here.

Repository branches

As per guidelines given here.

Pre-release versions

Pre-release versions maybe appended with a tag like "rc1", "rc2" etc. For example "1.2.0-rc1". Such a tag will be reflected in all the artifacts -- Odoo, Dockers, Helm Charts etc.

Git branch and tag

Typically, branches on Git repositories match the version number of the module/component.

For Odoo module repositories, a prefix of Odoo version is added to the branch name, e.g. 17.0-1.0.0, 17.0-develop.Within a branch, multiple Git tags may be created like 17.0-1.0.0-rc1, 17.0-1.0.0-rc2 etc.

For non-Odoo module repositories, you should find a develop branch in the repo where in-progress work may be checked-in.

For releases, a release branch is forked out of the "develop" branch and given a version number for the release (like 1.2.0-rc1 or 1.3.0). Subsequently, release specific check-ins like bug fixes are made on this branch. For the final release, this branch is Git tagged, frozen (no further check-ins allowed) and merged into the develop branch. Thus, all the changes related to the release are available in develop for further development. The recommended Github tagging convention for a final release is to have a prefix v before the version number. For example, v15., release-, v1.0.0, release-1.0.0
