I've already bugfixed several issues for newer django compatibility, but I keep hitting more and more (see below). Seems development stopped March 2011...

It seems that OSQA now has a GitHub repo. It appears to be alive...

See here:

The software does not appear to be completely dead, but it also doesn't appear to be current or under active development. Apparently there is a beta version that works but currently it does not pass TurnKey quality control. As such this issue is being closed.
