First, i'd like to say: Good work!
Second, i found some small errors in the documentation that describes Django deployment with mod_wsgi: http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.2/howto/deployment/modwsgi/
The documentation says to
add "sys.path.append('/usr/local/django') just above the final import line to place your project on the path."
This is not correct. It should not be "above", it should be "below", ie, after importing sys: "just after the 'import sys' line to place your project on the path"
It does not work if you append a path to sys before importing sys itself. (Shoule be obvious but better to have it correct)
Further.. it is a little unclear that "/usr/local/django" is intended to be the same as "/path/to/mysite" which is used for the WSGIScriptAlias at the beginning of the document; while at the end of the document it suddenly changes again to: WSGIScriptAlias / /usr/local/wsgi/scripts/django.wsgi
This is not very clear, I think it is better to be consistent for file paths.
So, perhaps it is better to either use /path/to/mysite or alternatively, give a disclaimer that the local files are stored at /usr/local/django or at /usr/local/wsgi
Keep up the good work!
