[Grok-dev] some actual deployment questions

I may have gotten myself into some trouble! :-) I'm supposed to deploy
a small web app today that I wrote in Grok, and it's only now, as a
co-worker is about to arrive to start the install with me, that I
realize that I have not though everything.
- Currently the admin username and password are in buildout.cfg in
Subversion for anyone to see. I suppose I ought to "include" them
from another file that is not checked into Subversion?
- How do I tell Grok which user to run as, so that root can start it
from an /etc/init.d symlink but without Grok's running as root?
- I need to put Apache in front of my Grok app, and was thinking of
using a RewriteRule. But with Plone this causes terrible problems
because Plone will write URLs that say "localhost:8080" instead of
the external name, unless I include a VirtualHostMonster and do its
URL rewrite dance. Does Grok have this problem? Will all the URLs
on the first page I look at be broken?
I'll happily write a small tutorial to deploying Grok in the real
world once this is all done. When, by the way, does the new site come
up so I can start adding things to it?
