initial version

There is no alternative system to gravatar yet, but it is in the plans.

There Done, supports uploaded avatars now.

However, the feature uses development version of django application - 'django-avatar', no pip install or easy_install option is no alternative system to gravatar yet, not available yet (there is one, but it is in the plans.outdated).

Please, install the app from the repository:

 git clone git://github.com/ericflo/django-avatar.git
 cd django-avatar
 python setup.py install

Add 'avatar' to the list of INSTALLED_APPS in your settings.py, Configure MEDIA_ROOT and MEDIA_URL to serve the avatars correctly, and run:

 python manage.py syncdb

Once the app is updated on the PYPI (python package index), it will be easier to install.
