[GeoNode-devel] Using geonode-updateip with a custom geonode-project

Hi Dave,

FYI I'm looking at an install script to be able to inject custom modules
into a base django project - with GeoNode as a target.

This will handle:
* importing custom settings for module via a template
* injection into INSTALLED_APPS and urls.py
* running migrations
* collecting static files
* installing and configuring additional resources and components used by
the module (e.g. other tomcat WARs)
* performing tests (planned)

  I have an ansible version (on a private repo) but am waiting for some
info from the Boundless folk about using a vanilla shell approach for
improved portability, and some details on how to best run this in a docker
context (as i'm a docker noob)

if you are interested happy to work with you to either;
1) explore adding modules like django-gazetteer to your project using this
2) refactor your project to inject your specialised extensions into a base
Geonode install.
