ViewVC with mod_python, up and running

14 Nov 2006

12/20/2006 update: I had to disable ViewVC diffs; bots were running complicated diffs and killing RubyForge - load averages over 100 and all that. But all the other ViewVC functionality - including CVSGraph and such - should work fine.

After an epic struggle I've gotten ViewVC working under mod_python, so I can finally close this bug. More importantly, browsing Subversion and CVS repositories on RubyForge should be much faster now that we're no longer using CGI for this. Go ahead, click around a bit!

A few notes on the configuration involved to get this going:

Thanks to the folks on the #viewvc IRC channel (cmpilato especially) for their help in getting things set up!
