hi there
I tried to run the buildout but get lots of errors.

ow my questions:
I created my own buildout structure and just copied/rename all cfg files 
from github
from this directory i did run bin/buildout:
     is that ok so?

is there a documentation somewhere. the one linked to  from github seems 
to be rather out of date.
Especially, does this recipe expect any thing unusual installed?

thanks
robert
