I'm also eyeing on this feature,

Edit: I want to install askbot as a standalone application.

The easiest way to install uwsgi without worrying too much is by pypi: pip install uwsgi it will compile and everything but it might throw errors if you don't have the correct libraries installed. Could you provide details on your target scenario?
