    49                 Do a subversion checkout of django trunk. Or get version 1.0 that has the signals speedup (ticket 6814)
    50                 Or if ticket 6814 is not in yet, apply patch ticket 6857 (http://code.djangoproject.com/ticket/6857)

     54Currently the #6814 ticket is not resolved, so you need to apply the patch from #6857 to make robustapply work.
     55Without the patch signals will blow up showing obscure import errors.
     56
     57Once Django 1.0 is out, it should run on PyPy out of the box.

    53 Python 2.4
     60== Python 2.4 ==
    5461
    55                 Django only requires Python 2.3. But, be aware that many popular django applications depend on Python 2.5 runtime lib.
     62PyPy supports the 2.4 runtime library, so you have to be aware of code using 2.5 features.

    57                 * elementtree (from xml.etree import cElementTree as ElementTree)
    58                 python-openid
    59                 yadis
    60                 gdata
    61                
    62                 * hashlib
    63                 python-openid

     64Django only requires Python 2.3. So as such Django runs just fine on PyPy.
     65But, be aware that many popular django applications depend on Python 2.5 runtime lib.
     66
     67Getting the Pinax Django Hotclub project running we needed a couple of extra dependencies,
     68 * elementtree
     69 * hashlib
     70But these have now been included in PyPy during the EuroPython sprint (well done hpk & hruske).
     71
     72If you try to run Pinax on cPython 2.4 you would have this dependency problem.
     73
     74== Pinax Project ==
     75
     76If you want to get the Pinax project up and running you need to check out the trunk
     77{{{
     78svn checkout http://django-hotclub.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ django-hotclub
     79}}}
     80This checks out pinax and all the associated applications from Google Code. If you want to check out with
     81git follow the instructions on the project wiki at
     82
