As a Developer, it is best to run the Trunk version of Web2Py, so that you can fine-tune the version that you have installed & get involved with the Web2Py developer community.
Note: If you have a slow internet connection, and
bzr branch does not complete, see below.
bzr branch lp:~mdipierro/web2py/devel web2py
There are occasional issues with the latest Trunk, so you may need to try a slightly older revision.
cd web2py bzr revno bzr revert -r <earlier revision>
If you have a slow internet connection, the
bzr branch of Web2Py may not complete, due to a Launchpad timeout (this is a reported problem). In this case, you can do a "lightweight checkout", which does not provide a full revision history, and cannot be used to submit code for Web2Py.
bzr checkout --lightweight lp:~mdipierro/web2py/devel web2py
As a Developer, you should generally run the Trunk version of Eden, so that you can submit patches against the latest code:
cd web2py/applications bzr branch lp:sahana-eden eden

Now, see how to put your installation to work:
