Hi all.
Thanks for the suggestion. However, IMHO requiring the installation of a
WPS server, plus the configuration of all modules, is a rather heavy
requirement, and it will make the installation of the whole beast much
more cumbersome.
Furthermore, 52N is in java, which will make things only worse.
In addition, this does not seem a short term solution, and I think we
need something working smoothly *now*.
All the best.
