I've tried to use pinax with a custom-made base project using this command inside my virtualenv :

$ pinax-admin setup_project -b ../path/to/custom/project newprojectname

Ending with this exception :

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/vash/workspace/test/droid/droidware/ortodellacultura/bin/pinax-admin", line 8, in <module>
    load_entry_point('Pinax==0.9b1.dev10', 'console_scripts', 'pinax-admin')()
  File "/home/vash/workspace/test/droid/droidware/ortodellacultura/lib/python2.6/site-packages/pinax/core/management/", line 105, in execute_from_command_line
  File "/home/vash/workspace/test/droid/droidware/ortodellacultura/lib/python2.6/site-packages/pinax/core/management/", line 94, in execute
  File "/home/vash/workspace/test/droid/droidware/ortodellacultura/lib/python2.6/site-packages/pinax/core/management/", line 45, in run_from_argv
    self.handle(*args, **options.__dict__)
  File "/home/vash/workspace/test/droid/droidware/ortodellacultura/lib/python2.6/site-packages/pinax/core/management/commands/", line 66, in handle
    self.setup_project(args[0], options["base"], options)
  File "/home/vash/workspace/test/droid/droidware/ortodellacultura/lib/python2.6/site-packages/pinax/core/management/commands/", line 130, in setup_project
    installer = ProjectInstaller(source, destination, project_name, user_project_name)
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'source' referenced before assignment

So I managed to get pinax working using :

# pinax/core/management/commands/ (lines 112-127)

# check the base value (we could later be much smarter about it and
# allow repos and such)
if base in [p.replace("_project", "") for p in self.project_list()]:
    project_name = "%s_project" % base
    source = os.path.join(PROJECTS_DIR, project_name)
    if not os.path.exists(base):
        raise CommandError(
            "Project template does not exist the given "
            "path: %s" % base
        project_name = os.path.basename(base)
        source = base #just add this line

installer = ProjectInstaller(source, destination, project_name, user_project_name)

Basically in this particular case the source variable was not passed to the ProjectInstaller() method
