Description of problem:
When I want to deploy Pagure using RPM from distribution, then I have to alter

This is bad as the change is overwritten on next 'dnf upgrade'.
The change needed to run the server should be done only in config and everything in /usr/share/ should be left untouched.

I have always approached the wsgi provided as an example file rather than something functional, but I see the issue.

There are two ways to go about this:
- Mark the two wsgi files as doc then and don't install them in /usr/share but then the apache configuration is pointing to non-existing files
- Keep things as is tag the two wsgi files with ``%config(noreplace)``

The content

import __main__
__main__.__requires__ = ['SQLAlchemy >= 0.8', 'jinja2 >= 2.4']
import pkg_resources
import os
os.environ['PAGURE_CONFIG'] = '/etc/pagure/pagure.cfg'
os.environ['TEMP'] = '/var/tmp/'
from pagure import APP as application

is perfectly sane for production. I see no reason why not uncomment it and use it. Just keep that part about debug or different path comment for users who want to play with it. But the above should be good start for everybody, which does not need to be altered.

Comment 3 Bruno Wolff III 2016-07-08 13:08:43 UTC
I had noticed this when I was looking at doing a setup using the Fedora package. There are a few defaults in the sample config files that don't match the Fedora install, that would be noce to change. The WSGI case is worse because if you just use the standard file it gets replaced at update. But altogether it makes setting up a play instance harder than it really should be. One other notable case is having the username default to git rather than gitolite3. If we really want to use the simpler git by default we should set that up on the install. But for a default install which is likely to just be used for testing, change the default config and docs to use gitolite3 might be better. I thought there was some stuff about the sample apache confs that also bugged me, but I don't remember right now. I have limited time, so would probably move slowly with any of this.

Well, one reason is that I do not want pagure to be "functional" upon install, since it cannot be as the DB needs to be created and all.

So I provide both the apache config file and the wsgi commented out, but maybe the wsgi file could be un-commented indeed.
