and then:

1) create a grokproject with the same app_name on the demo machine
2) checkout your code
3) possibly update buildout.cfg
4) run bin/buildout
5) copy parts/data/data.fs to the demo machine
6) bin/zopectl fg
    (to run in foreground mode, so you get the error messages in the  

This is also what you would do to deploy your app. Note that any eggs  
that you need have to be installed on the demo machine so you will  
need an internet connection or other means of provising the eggs.
