I think this is not the fault of any grokapp but mainly of grokproject.
I fixed this two weeks ago, but didn't release it. So easy_install still
grabs the old faulty version of grokproject.

Grok 1.0 is okay (at least I think so). The proper action might be to
release a fixed 'grokproject'. I don't know whether it is ready for
that. There were still some complaints/discussions after my last fix so
I didn't dare to release that.

Sorry to hear that and thank you very much for the message!

As I am currently not too much into all the changes Grok has undergone
since pre-1.0: is grokproject trunk ready for release?

If I do not get any feedback until tonight (European timezone), I will
make a release then.

Best regards,
