Hi Benji,

yes, the instructions are of great help and now I am already running the
indexer (by now 16000 packages in oS-10.2). I'll let it finish overnight
and then try out the web service and clients.

BTW people if you do not know Benji's webpin already, check it out:
http://benjiweber.co.uk:8080/webpin/



Notes on the README:
I did not have mysql running. For experimenting on localhost, it is
enough to:
- vi /etc/my.conf, add the fulltext parameter to [mysqld]
- rcmysql start
- mysql -u root
> SET PASSWORD FOR 'root'@'localhost' = PASSWORD('secret');
> create database webpin;

run trawl.sh.
Before that, consider:
- deleting the memory requirements in trawl.sh if you do not have much memory
- editing bin/repos to index only a few repos for the first test
