The following list of guidelines constitutes a key reference for everyone involved in the OpenERP community. Every new contributor must absolutely read it before starting the contribution process, in order to participate actively in maintaining a high level of general quality improvement in OpenERP.
It is also important for developers to periodically come refresh their skills and coding habits by having a quick read of these best-practices.
As part of the Quality Review Process, everyone is of course invited to refer to these guidelines when providing feedback on contributions (code, documentation, anything.). If a specific guideline seems to be missing in the list, or if you have found a perfect example of a good (or bad) pattern, please feel free to contribute.
The comments system can be used for this purpose, but it would be even better to directly update the source of this documentation (see the contribution guide).
