Here is a "new and shiney" presentation for running Django on Jython. It's based on my experiences with the DjangoJython tutorial.
As is discussed in the slide deck, and hence the subtitle of the presentation, much could be helped by more careful reading of documentation. Well, moments ago, I decided that I hadn't checked out django-jython 1.1. Well.... turns out many more problems could have been helped by using this later version. Sweet!
