OSQA ON HEROKU
*******************************************************************************
OSQA is the free, open source Q&A system you've been waiting for. Your OSQA
site is more than just an FAQ page, it is a full-featured Q&A community. Users

This repository contains a working copy of OSQA that will run on Heroku [2].
There were a few changes from the standard install to make everything run
