Thanks, there is also a Unix deployment recipe.

However, for my web application there is more work to do.

I use Nginx + wsgi module, so I also need to configure Nginx.
The Nginx configuration file is actually a Mako template, since some
parameters (server name, location paths) depends on the deployment type
(development PC, testing server, production server).

These parameters are defined in a configuration file, and during setup
the configuration file needs to be generated.
Should this be done subclassing the config command?
