[Grok-dev] Application Distribution HOWTO

I don't create eggs for my applications. I just install Grok on the  
production server using grokproject, make sure it has the same  
application name as on the dev server, and manually copy the source  
code files and static folder (alt. you could update your code on the  
production server using CVS or SVN).

Grok works very well as is. Since it is built on Zope 3, you will  
find that 99% of the code is production quality. From what I  
understand the biggest issue would be that the API's might change  
slightly until the 1.0 release (which is due soon). Also, some new  
features are in the pipe.
