Kwetter microblogging buildout

This documentation and accompanying scripts are based on an Ubuntu Lucid baseline. You may have to adapt the required pre-dependencies if you're installing on a different platform. See the "pre-depends" target in the Makefile.
The following steps create a working kwetter installation:
- checkout kwetter
git clone ssh://github.com/pjstevns/kwetter
add debian.nfgd.net to your apt sources:

sudo echo "deb http://debian.nfgd.net/debian unstable main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
run the installer script:
cd kwetter make
run the kwetter daemons:
verify daemon status:
This should show an output like:
| kwetter-m2 RUNNING pid 5194, uptime 0:12:21 | kwetterd RUNNING pid 5195, uptime 0:12:21 | mongrel2 RUNNING pid 5193, uptime 0:12:21
You now have a working system.
