Hi, I'm Raphaël Valyi, one of the main author of the synchro module between OpenERP and Magento. Some 10 months ago, after completing an extensive study about open source ERP's, I convinced Smile, my employer, to support that synchro module allowing Magento and OpenERP to work together. Some two months later, thanks to Smile and the tireless work of Sylvain Pamart, we got that connector in pretty good shape already.
Over the time, we improved it and tried to integrate community contributions as much as possible.
Since then, our OpenERP schedule at Smile got totally loaded with customer contracts letting us little time for the community even if Smile is still commited to support the effort in theory (my boss agrees on a 2 man days per month effort so far, as long as we have no higher priority, and that's the catch) . So unfortunately, it means that the connector is always lagging behind direct commercial activities.
Anyway, as I do personally see interest in pushing that connector forward, I'm taking on my spare time to give you updates about the connector in this blog, under the magento-openerp-synchro tag, so it get exported to our brand new Connector Yahoo Pipes powered planet mashup: http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.info?_id=7mpa3ckG3hGCuJSWPxJ3AQ
Ideally, I'll let any contributor (including Smile.fr) post in that planet when they contribute in the future. So the corporate work supported by Smile.fr will hence probably be published both here and on the corporate blog, that is http://blog.smile.fr/le-blog-des-consultants.
So I hope this planet will be a fair place to give updates about the connector while accommodating corporate, personal and community contributions. Feel also free to comment in the respective planet blogs.
Finally note that this planet is managed as a Yahoo Pipes aggregator wrapped inside a Google Gadget eventually. You can contact me to have your blog (+specific tag) included in that planet if you wish.
