[WG] Investigate WSGI for python cgi.

Description (last modified by lawrence) (diff)

 WSGI is a specification of an interface between web servers and Python web applications or frameworks, aimed at promoting web application portability across a variety of web servers.

We already have a ticket looking at the suitability of fastcgi as an environment (ticket:252), but we are likely for the forseeable future to continue development on vanilla cgi, and to want to be able to deploy in vanilla cgi. Thus we need a clean interface with multiple frameworks, which WSGI would provide us.

Sub issues to consider include:

  • How hard to re-engineer our code?
  • How hard to deploy WSGI applications in apache? Standalone?
  • Is this a new noxious dependency for deploying NDG applications?
