No worries.  The work in progress will be at bluebream.bitmonk.net, URL soon.

I can help here as well, I've been meaning to contribute on running
within Apache Passenger as well - a lot of popular, low dollar hosts
like DreamHost use this and I've had Grok/Dolmen and pure BB code
working relatively easily here, though only as proof of concept - it's
relatively slow.

same as above...

typically what I do to do this by hand is to take something like
bin/paster or bin/test which has all of the sys.path modifications,
then at the very bottom, rip out whatever it imports and runs, and put
something like this:

  from zope.app.wsgi import WSGIApplication
  application = WSGIApplication()

It's *slightly* more involved than that, but that's what I can pull from memory.

I have production examples of this as well, if you need.

A lot of these things are taken for granted, it's good we are focusing
on them.  More experienced Zope folks know where to look and are only
slightly inconvenienced by these things not being covered adequately
in the BB docs, but for new users, I imagine it's very frustrating and
a deterrent to using the platform.

More soon!
