and wiki see our tutorial at:
http://sct.sphene.net/wiki/show/Tutorial/

### Python library path

You need to add sphenecoll/ to your python include path.

### Maintenance cron job (Optional)

To recaulcate heat for forum threads and similar, you should add the following
cronjob to run once a day (or similar)

    /path/to/your/django/project/manage.py sph_maintenance

### Cache

SCT makes use of django caching framework - it is therefore advised to 
configure CACHE_BACKEND django setting & co.
look at the [django caching documentation](http://www.djangoproject.com/documentation/cache/)

### Search

## Examples

There are currently two examples - a very simplistic 'simpleproject' in the
examples/ directory (see examples/simpleproject/README) and a more
sophisticated example called CommunityDraft which i recommend as using as a base for your
own projects (if you start from scratch).
See <http://sct.sphene.net/wiki/show/CommunityDraft/> for details.
