WordPress / BuddyPress Blog Registration and Scripts

I am almost ready to submit my scope of work to the programmers.  I have been looking at a lot of mods, on both BuddyPress and WordPress.

When I look at a few sites that are using WordPress (and BuddyPress), some say that you need to register on WordPress.org.  I wanted to make sure that if I install a WordPress on my server, people can register on my site and all of that information is just secured on my site and not WP.  

I am guessing that all the registration information will be done on my end and WordPress will not get access to it, but I just wanted to make sure.

The other issue - are WordPress plugins compatible with BuddyPress and vice-versa?  I was reading something on BuddyPress and it made it sound like BuddyPress had their own version of WordPress.


Thanks!

Thanks!  I thought a much but wanted verification before I submitted this.  It just seemed like everywhere I turned to, it wanted a wordpress.org login.  I know that a lot of people like WP but I just could not see everyone relying on such a login.

Can you send me an example of that?  I'm curious to see who is trying to drive that and why.
