I suppose not, but the development team I'm working with has a strong preference for python server pages for a particular project, and the creative team handling the front-end interface all uses Macs. So getting a consolidated environment together on a single platform the creative staff can use is a priority. I'm betting the development team could learn WSGI, but it's unknown whether the production platform supports it. I'm unclear on the future of mod_python -- are you saying that it's going away, and being replaced (sort of) by mod_wsgi? If so, then it would probably be foolish to start any new projects using PSP. > > If you are using a Python web application that supports WSGI, you > would be better off using mod_wsgi as it has sorted out all these > build issues for newest MacOS X versions and Python installations. > Even then for certain combinations, and if wanting to use mod_wsgi > 2.X, as opposed to mod_wsgi 3.0 release candidates, you need to drag > down configure/Makefile from subversion repository to get it to build. > There will be a mod_wsgi 2.6 which has more MacOS X build fixes soon > though.
