why is mysql required to get askbot up and running? why doesn't it support all the database back-ends supported by django?
most people, like myself, have already their version of django and database system setup in their development environment. i think those should be excluded from the requirements.
Agreed, indeed more databases should be supported and testing on postrgres is on a todo shortlist.
Askbot now works on postgres. Thanks for bringing this up.
edit: also full text search with ranking by relevance is now working in postrges.
MySQL should not be required as well as some other dependencies and looks like it's actually possible to run askbot on
sqlite (thanks to Onur) and postgres.
The problem that we have to solve here is how to satisfy different needs without getting in the users' way too much. One can imagine the following scenarios:
What would really be great is to come up with a flexible
setup.py script and the follow-up deployment script, otherwise there is no way to make adoption of askbot easy for most users.
