"As we tend to host OpenERP on servers that are connected to the big wide Internet, our objective is to end up with a system that is:

"A: Accessible only via encrypted (SSL) services from the GTK client, Web browser, WebDAV and CalDAV

"B: Readily upgradeable and customisable

"One of my friends said to me recently, 'surely it's just sudo apt-get install openerp-server isn't it?' Fair enough; this would actually work. But there are several problems I have with using a packaged implementation in this instance:

"Out-of-date. The latest packaged version I could see, in either the Ubuntu or Debian repositories, was 5.0.15. OpenERP is now at 6.0.2 and is a major upgrade from the 5.x series.

"Lack of control. Being a business application, with many configuration choices, it can be harder to tweak your way when the packager determined that one particular way was the "true path".

"Upgrades and patches. Knowing how, where and why your OpenERP instance is installed the way it is, means you can decide when and how to update it and patch it, or add custom modifications."
