RE: [vox-tech] Install Plone on Ubuntu

I remember reading about problems with the Plone package for Debian.  The
installation of Plone using 'apt-get install' has been problematic for me.
While the install goes just fine, adding Plone products was hit and miss,
and I heard of problems with upgrading versions as well.  I ran into many
errors until I re-installed Zope and Plone from source.  There was a warning
about the Debian packages on the Plone.org (?) site a while back, but I
can't seem to find it now.  If you are planning to run Zope/Plone in a
production environment, you will have more control over the product if you
stick with the source tarballs, at least that's been my experience.

I use apt-get for everything BUT Zope and Plone.
