It's great to see this kind of responsiveness to the community from the makers of these tools. So far I love the Python community!

I think I almost have everything working, but I have one small problem.

How can I compile a war for an existing django project? When I try to run jython25 war it says: Unknown command: 'war'

Does this mean I have to build every project from scratch as a jython project? Or is there something special I can do to my old projects to make them able to compile into a war?

I noticed I can at least run jython25 runserver, but when I load the site it says:

Exception Type:      DatabaseError
Exception Value:    

driver [org.mysql.Driver] not found

Exception Location:     /Users/jacob/djython/jython-d/dist/Lib/site-packages/doj/backends/zxjdbc/mysql/ in _cursor, line 167

Sure, please give me your google code account name and I'll add you to
