I've learned to be uncomfortable about installing items on my system that are not know-about/blessed-by the system package manager. Pip and Easy_install both ignore the Apt system.
Is there a deb package for Askbot somewhere? Perhaps an Ubuntu PPA?
There aren't system packages yet, but
pip is an excellent system actually, works on all systems for python packages.
easy_install (btw - there is no reason at all to use
easy_install now it is basically obsolete) will not do - they will not install system packages such as a web server, any server modules, or the database.
There are too many options of webservers, and at least two database engines that will work with askbot - so not sure how to satisfy everyone, plus it is additional work to maintain those packages, we just don't have the resources for that yet.
