just getting started on OFN. It’s a very interesting project and sounds promising. Although apparently still a lot of work is required.
I’d like to use OFN with a buying group. It seems that currently only a centralized server architecture is supported (as in each country has their own server architecture where all users/hubs/producers are registered). It’s not really ideal as a decentralized architecture would allow much more flexibility.
However, I would like to try out setting up a buying group to test the features a bit. Following this guide (step
2) I’m an independent buying group) I ended up creating an account on both the AU and UK OFN:
- The AU OFN asked whether I’m a producer or not a producer, but did not ask whether I’m a hub shop or a user, as is specified in the guide,
- the UK OFN did not even ask anything upon creating an account.
Is the guide super outdated? Or are the local OFNs UK and AU simply customized? Meaning I would have to install my own local OFN to proceed?
