*******************************************************************************
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 
earn points and badges for useful participation, and everyone in the community 
wins. [1]

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 
smoothly. I also added the Gunicorn WSGI webserver [3] for your convienence.
