+<h1>How to get Django</h1>
+<p>Django is available open-source under the <a href="">BSD license</a>. It requires Python version 2.6.5 or higher, but it has no dependencies on other Python libraries. There are several ways you can get it:</p>
+<h2>Option 1. Get the latest official version</h2>
+<p>The latest official version is 1.5. You can get it by direct download:
+<p>First, download <a href="">Django-1.5.tar.gz</a> (<a href="">checksums</a>). Then:</p>
+<pre class="literal-block"><code>tar xzvf Django-1.5.tar.gz
+cd Django-1.5
+sudo python install</code></pre>
+<p>You can also use <a href="">pip</a>:
+<pre class="literal-block"><code>pip install Django==1.5</code></pre>
+<h2>Option 2. Get the latest development version</h2>
+<p>The latest and greatest Django version is the one that's in our Git repository (our revision-control system). Get it using this shell command, which requires <a href="">Git</a>:</p>
+<p class="literal-block"><code>git clone</code></p>
+<p>You can also download <a href="">a zipped archive</a> of the development version.</p>
+<h2>After you get it</h2>
+<p>See the <a href="">installation guide</a> for further instructions. Make sure you read the documentation that corresponds to the version of Django you've just installed.</p>
-{{ flatpage.content }}
+<p>And be sure to sign up for the <a href="/r/django-users/">django-users mailing list</a>, where other Django users and the Django developers themselves all hang out to help each other.</p>
