    Hello Sebastien,

    We have a branch ("multiple-web-servers") where this issue is resolved in an another way; the docs are still lacking but code is working; this branch will be merged in "default" very soon - I hope you will like it.

      Yes I noticed afterward. I am currently working on the "multiple web-servers" branch too, planning to add support for flask, supervisor and gunicorn.

      BTW, I don't know if it is a bug or if you are using an other version of fabric-taskset but WebProject method _expose_to(module_obj) return a generator, not a list. I couldn't test with the VMs yet as my updated OS X broke VirtualBox badly.

        Great, thanks!

        I forgot to merge fabric-taskset changes from :)

        As for multiple-web-servers, there would be a couple of naming changes (I don't like "app", "apps", etc. names because it is easy to confuse them with django apps).

        The following supervisord module may be a starting point:

        Our current discussions about DFD was in private Russian emails; if you have something to discuss feel free to create a topic in google group (!forum/django-fab-deploy ); we'd better to move there too.

    regarding, the "apps" name, I think it would make sense to call it "services" instead. For instance, one of my project is organised this way:

    services = dict( api=Django(Nginx(), Gunicorn()), broker=Supervisord(), ) project = WebProject(services=services).expose_as_module('myService')
