It's a nice overview, but it's extremely basic. I would have appreciated some further reading (specifically for Django signals and injecting into views). The Python skeleton package is cool, though.

Thanks. I'm planning some additional posts to cover these in detail.

I agree: great topic but light on details. If you're considering ideas for additional posts, I'd personally love to see case studies from Pinax itself to see exactly how/why to use the techniques you talked about.

I've been using this https://gist.github.com/1548742 to generate package skeletons for django apps. Configures a django-nose test runner for setup.py, package data sniffer, etc.

Here is a post on use of signals that I hope is helpful. http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=3413956
