Thanks for spending time on this!
Pydocweb is not yet really at the stage at which it's a reusable Django
application. Some more reorganization needs to be done before it will
actually work in a buildout / installed:
- also install the pydoc-tool.py script
- same for the database migration scripts
- some of the templates should be moved inside docweb/, I believe
Before this is done, having a build system in place is perhaps not so
useful, because a major part of the functionality assumes a certain
project layout, and does not reside only in the app.
Did you check that you can run pydocweb from the buildout?
Anyway, moving src/ -> pydocweb/ seems to make it work, and preserves
the possibility to run in-place without buildout. Merging, thanks!
