We should definitely clean any conflicting sources that we have 
control over.  However, the only "official" and reviewed documentation 
is on grok.zope.org.

Documentation from a mailing list, bug tracking site, or someone's blog
needs to be considered carefully.  It would be difficult to track and
correct all that content.

Can you point out where on Launchpad you found installation instructions?

"Blueprints" are work being done on the documentation, not the 
documentation itself.  (The blueprints do link to the official 
and community documentation on the Grok site.)

If there is a spot in the documentation that recommends
adjusting the "alternatives" in Ubuntu, or changing your 
system Python in order to install and run Grok, please post
the link because that should not be there.
