The install is now running into several obstacles and doesn't work as is. First of all it renames the tar file "master" and then halts installation before creating the django_site directory. Second, more annoying, is that setup.py tries to fetch the django toolbar program dependency at a website that is down, so that setup.py also halts -- this is a problem I have even in installing it on my own system.

I am looking forward to one day using askbot but as it is now, none of the installation instructions actually work.

EDIT: the alwaysdata installation instructions now work.
