How do I get files and images to be uploaded to S3?

I have forked askbot-devel and adapted the lateast release (0.7.51) to run from heroku. Everything seems fine, with one exception: Heroku does not persist uploaded files, so even avatars or the new license symbol are lost after each application restart.

I suspect it is possible to have uploaded files sent to AWS (Amazon Web Services) S3 storage service. Changelog refereces that, Django documentation explains how to do it, but I can't find any reference in the code or documentation.

How can that be implemented? Will just following Django docs work?

Look for some Amazon S3 static files storage backend and try using that.
