  2. does not lead to downtime anymore.

  4. Remove media-links from configs. It is redundant.
  5. Use gunicorn in way advised by Django.
  6. Install device-proxy through pip from pypi.

  3. Simplify by removing an option.
  4. Force buildout 1.7.0 since version 2 has backward incompatible changes.


  1. device-proxy and haproxy is now part of our setup. This enables user-agent to backend mapping.
  2. Buildouts massively refactored. Everything can be regenerated using STATIC_URL changes for basic and smart layers.


  1. south lowercase pin added.
  2. now creates necessary cron entries.
  3. Sentry is now part of our setup.


  1. makes getting a development environment running easy.


  1. Demo now uses location aware SQLite database.
