I've tried to make the process more streamlined the past few
days. Much of the had to do with dependencies of ordf.

As of today I can do,

	% virtualenv workingdir
	% . workingdir/bin/activate
	% pip install ordf
	% ordf
	INFO  [ordf.handler] Handler(0/0) initialised ver 0.6.4

It does all the dependencies that you would like. A simple
configuration with rdflib 3.0.0/sleepycat and pairtree is trivial
(see examples). That should be all that is minimally required
to run a small local instance.

Changing to rdflib 2.4.2 is easy if that works better for you

	% pip uninstall rdflib
	% pip install rdflib==2.4.2

If you want to make a more elaborate configuration, see,

bibliographica on top of this *should* work pretty much
without any additional work...

Running development branch is,

	% pip install mercurial
	% pip install -e hg+http://ordf.org/src/#egg=ordf

A basic level of getting data in and out of the store can be
done with the ordf(1) tool
