Is it an expectation to have to know Django in order to install and host Askbot? I believe I followed the Askbot Documentation pretty explicitly, so wondering if it might be out-of-date.

During the "Initial Configuration of Askbot" step from the documentation, I ran into this error when trying to consolidate the static files:

$ python manage.py collectstatic

I've installed askbot using the pip install method. I'm unfamiliar with Python's package management, so not sure where to start.
