Agent Unifier App experiment
I'm starting to work on a small app that records what record is the same agent (person or organization) across existing apps. This will allow groups that use multiple apps to know who/what is the same agent for any purposes (stats, accounting, agent dashboards, etc.) It is one piece of getting to a more agent-centric open app architecture.
This type of thing is needed by both FairCoop and Mutual Aid Network, both of which I am working with now in different interoperability projects. They actually have a lot of overlapping needs.
I'm doing it in django because that is what I have worked with most in recent years, and because we have some code that gives a good start to this app. But I consider that to be a stop-gap implementation, and hope that some of the more decentralized agent-centric architectures will come to the rescue at some point.
I'm putting it here as an update, but partly because I am running into some questions that I could use some advice on, which I will add as comments here. Or if anyone knows of such a thing already, then I definitely would be interested in that.
