[GeoNode-devel] Publish WFS Layers with Remote Services app

In fact this code (cascaded wfs) should really be removed from GeoNode
as it never really worked right. As far as I know, the old WFS Vector
Data Store in GeoServer was not working really and I believe this
function was removed from gsconfig (would have to look through the
history). You might try again with the newer Web Feature Server (NG)
datastore type in GeoServer. Check here for the documentation on how
to do this in the UI
http://docs.geoserver.org/latest/en/user/data/cascaded/wfs.html and
 You would need to add the necessary bits to gsconfig to configure
this via the rest API. Alessio and the Geosolutions folks might be
able to help.

Note, It may also be possible to add an indexed WFS now and pass it
through the proxy such that the new geonode-client can load it. In the
past we could not make this work with geoexplorer.

Let us know if you make progress. This is a potentially really useful feature.
