Thanks Philippe for the details you have shared below. Really appreciate
the work you and your team is doing in consolidating the bar codes.

I will be very happy to help you in whichever way possible. So please let
me know If I can do anything for you, i wish i could become a product owner
bur not sure if i have right skills or not :) !!!

Also i am planning to setup an e-comm store for myself in near future and
utilize the open data as the basis for it.

> there's still a lot of work to do : a product manager is required to be

> for the moment, we only have a brand manager (it was a big work ! )
> >>>>>>> http://product.okfn.org/brand/
> we assign a BSIN to each brand used in product open data
> but such manager must be developed for the products

> about the last refresh : i have always been alone to manage this database

> I spent 14 months of this project and I gathered 1 million of reference
> (no High tech) so just imagine what can do a group during few month,...
