Attempting to install the dev version, and after cloning, and running "python2.7 setup.py develop", I got the following error:
Downloading http://www.voidspace.org.uk/downloads/mock-1.0.0.zip error: Can't download http://www.voidspace.org.uk/downloads/mock-1.0.0.zip: 404 Not Found
Checking that website shows that only a tar.gz version of mock is available.
How can I tell it to download the tar.gz file instead?
This is strange, I can reproduce the error, but also find that repeating the "python setup.py develop" command takes you past this issue.
There is nothing we can do, one of the dependency modules requires mock library, which normally used only by the developers for testing the code.
Issues like this one may happen from time to time, because dependency modules are pulled from third party sites. It might be possible to set up an alternative module repository as a backup, but we don't have one now.

I had the same problem, and running setup again, it worked.
Can you provide an askbot distribution that includes all the dependencies already so users don't have to keep downloading them for each installation? Then you can also test that it works with those depedency versions...
