When installing askbot over an existing Django project it asks

Where to deploy (in which directory)?

which appears to want the project directory.

Given the absolute path to the project directory it immediately overwrites settings.py, urls.py, manage.py and __init__.py

I expected it to give me instructions on how to adjust the existing settings and urls files, which is what the startform source seems t imply it should do.

thanks. Yes this needs to be fixed. I'll take care of that soon.

it won't overwrite those files any more, but there are still thigs to test in the deployment script. There are lot's of conditions that different users can experience and many "if" statements as a result.
