Request feedback on running an EON Forger Node for yourself

Please look at the latest instructions here:

If you are currently running your own secure or supernode, or if you are running your own validator for another blockchain, can you try to follow these instructions on one of your spare machines and let me know if you have got it successfully forging?

I believe these instructions are technically challenging, but I am also willing to admit that I don’t like to run docker in production, and perhaps may not know enough about how to modify and deploy smart contracts to be a successful EON forger operator.

Looking for additional opinions
