Hi Don,

Impeccable timing, as CKAN 2.0 is released today! You should
definitely be installing CKAN 2.0, rather than 1.8 (which is lacking
various new features and will be more of a hassle to upgrade in
future) or 2.1 which is the current development version.

That seems to have something to do with this instruction:

> Download and install the latest version of CKAN.
>  (pyenv)$ pip install --ignore-installed -e git+https://github.com/okfn/ckan.git#egg=ckan

Can someone who understands these things say what the instruction
should be to get 2.0 (and preferably update the wiki page)?
