-1 On the community - StackOverflow alone is enough to find / get you answers to 99% of your questions in seconds.

+1 On the extensions - They almost never work out of the box and require extensive changes (or usually rewrites). Seems like Django people never figured out how to create portable apps for Django. (And the comment app is Horrible !)

I feel the main problem with extensions is that the "application" level of abstraction doesn't work very well in practice. It was an ambitious idea, but there are too many dependencies for that to be feasible.

That said, I still like Django for quickly banging out moderately complex apps.
