updated info for installing askbot as a django app?

Novice question: I'm trying to setup a new django site which askbot would be a part of but not the only piece. Most of the info about installing askbot as a reusable application to an existing Django project seems outdated (from 2011) and feels like it was incomplete at that time. I'm hoping there's a little more info now:

  • http://askbot.org/en/question/2879/how-to-use-askbot-as-a-pluggable-django-app/)
  • http://askbot.org/en/question/2592/modularity-and-extensibility-of-askbot/
  • http://askbot.org/doc/askbot-as-reusable-django-application.html

I'd like to start with askbot and then build the rest around it. I've got django 1.5 installed and our project created ready to go. I may be customizing various pieces of the code for our own use to integrate with what we're doing on our own site, so I've forked the latest askbot code from github next to our project and ran python setup.py develop

Or would it be better to start with askbot as a standalone and then build the rest of the site around that?

Is there any updated information about how to install askbot as an app for a larger django application (that may not be built yet)? From a novice perspective, any guidelines or hints would be helpful. I'm happy to get my hands dirty. I just want to start out on the right foot and couldn't find much in the docs on it.

I wish this also would be possible.
