Right -- as you already discovered yourself :-)

After your posting I tried it myself and all I needed was a very simple
specialized runner-script and an apache config file similar to the one
in the HOWTO. The `deploy.ini` worked out of the box. Looks like
`grokproject` already brings most of the stuff you need to do a grok
+apache+mod_wsgi setup :-)

There is no such document yet AFAIK. So if you would like to write one,
this would be great :-)

Using grok with Apache/mod-wsgi might be (or become) a common usecase.
Therefore I (as a WSGI-illiterate person) wonder, whether we should
support generated sample apache configs and a working
wsgi-application-creator script with `grokproject`.

This would basically mean one more template in the etc/ directory and
one more script in bin/, maybe called myapp.wsgi or similar.

Alternatively this could be done by an additional recipe.

Could that be useful? Or would that only complicate things further?

Best regards,
