i've just checked in the assembly for a war-only distribution. this
tarball contains sample properties and context config files as well as
the container provided jars (javamail, jaf, commons-logging). so the
process should be easier in the future.

Derby has known deadlocking issues at higher concurrency levels. we
run hub.chandlerproject.org with MySQL, and it is the most supported
of the options. I'm afraid we don't put a lot of effort into Postgres.
I don't think we even do migration scripts for it. if you're
interested, that would be an area where we could use some help.

yep - rename the webapps subdirectory to webapps/chandler and the
context config file to conf/Catalina/localhost/chandler.xml. this will
cause Tomcat to mount the webapp at /chandler.
