Yes. that is great documentation.

I reached the Too-Much-Information point on getting to execution of Python code from my
account.  But it is confirmed that I can use the publish link on the CMS browser view of the
site, and that will be sufficient in the near-term.

Downloading and installing the CMS and all of the Python modules is just amazing.  It is great
that Kay has documented it so nicely.  I have bookmarked that page of the Wiki.  Of course
my desktop machine's web server is IIS 7, and I have managed not to use it so far.  

It is wonderful that you and Kay have the level of devotion required to master all of this.

At the moment, that's a bridge too far among the abundance of areas where I already lack fluency.
 I think my ambition to be a developer on this project is misguided.

Hi Dennis,

Kay recently updated this page:

AFAIK - api is a special case and was discussed in the past. I'll find the thread if needed.

SVN is more mystery meat.  The only way I have seen for triggering publishing of the site
is on the CMS browser interface.  I have no idea if that is the place for performing the missing
