As a WSGI-know-nothing, I'm trying to figure out what to do to make WSGI
support a first class citizen in Grok.
I understand Philipp with grokproject and/or zopeproject has done some
work to integrate paste and WSGI.
There's also the Repoze project that offers WSGI integration, which
allows one to install Grok. Repoze also offers other things, of course.
What would be the way forward for Grok? What benefits and drawbacks do
these strategies offer? Perhaps they're mutually complementary? What do
we want to be possible with Grok eventually?
Perhaps we need some concrete goals. There is a cool WSGI-based Python
exception formatter. What would we need to do to make this available
All this also affects Grok's deployment story. In fact, Grok needs a
better deployment story. I presume WSGI is going to be involved, but we
also need documentation spelling out what to do to make Grok work with
their favorite web server. Would Grok work with mod_wsgi?
