How do I run askbot as a django project instead of running it as a python package?

When I run askbot-setup and I get really complicated django site that runs and has a but I can't work on anything. It seems to import everything from askbot python package.

If I clone askbot-devel I get a non-django source that I can't make sense of.

I want to edit the source code and work with askbot like a normal django project or app. Is there a way to do it. Kinda like how biostars and OSQA do it.

You are little bit confused about AskBot.

When you install AskBot it will automatically install and configure Django for you. no extra configuration needed. only you need basic information about Django..

That's all you need to know.
