Documentation not clear for apache-mopython

First, let me thank the documentation team and the designer team of Django. It's because of the excellent documentation and the clean interface I'm now very much interested in learning Django.

Now into my request. I'm not understanding the documentation for apache and mod-python outlined in I feel this page needs more attention and details. I dont know where I start from and haven't feel confident of using apache after reading the tutorial. Since all of us want to deploy django at some point of time on a real server and not use the built in development server, this page needs more information from the very basics.

for example, this is from the apache mod-python documentation page.

<Location "/mysite/">

SetHandler python-program
PythonHandler django.core.handlers.modpython
SetEnv DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE mysite.settings
PythonOption django.root /mysite
PythonDebug On

…and replace mysite.settings with the Python import path to your Django project’s settings file.

It'd have been easier, if you have taken an example and explained where mysite resides and with a sample mysite.settings etc.,

I hope am making sense.

Thank you,

Thanks for the ticket, but I think it doesn't quite provide enough guidance on what the documentation is lacking...
