Resolution to distribution initiation problem

Hello,

I am forwarding this on behalf of Sebastian, a developer with Soldevelo. Soldevelo is working on update to SELV, an OpenLMIS deployment in Mozambique.

Sebastian encountered a well-known issue, where it is impossible for a developer to initiate a distribution when OpenLMIS is hosted on their local machine (following the “push” model). This issue is documented in OLMIS-35. Here’s the solution proposal in his own words (I highlighted the fix suggestion in bold, his last sentence). Any feedback or ideas appreciated.
