Dear members,

To be able to load products into the database, we have to create the link
between the GTIN code (printed below the barcode) and products.

To identify a product, the required data are the brand, the name and the
size (oz. / g. / ml. / fl. oz. / ...). For the brand, we need an
identifier, and so, a brand repository.

If you download the database specifications of POD (
http://www.product-open-data.com/docs/POD-SPECS-2013.10.08_01.xlsx), you
will see that for the moment, brand repository contains 3 tables (brand,
brand_type and brand_group).

you can see the result here : http://www.product-open-data.com/group-list/

There're currently 4 000 brands (created manually) ...

We need to manage and scale this brand repository using a new platform
allowing collaborative work but with an important constraint : the Brand ID
must be stable and unique.

Do you have ideas about the way to do it ? (existing software, specific
development,... )
