Message I wonder what account I should use? "Postgres" or "root"? I tried both and
neither work. When I type:

cadmin.py -s http://localhost/XMLRPC test

I get:

cadmin.py: command not found

This seems logical since "cadmin.py" is in "/usr/share/current/api/", which
is not in the environment variable "PATH".

If I include the directory in PATH, and try again, I get an error saying
"cadmin.py" is not executable. This also seems logical, since "cadmin.py"
is a python script, and there is no mechanism in place to associate files
ending in "py" with python. If I force things by putting "python" in front
of "cadmin.py", I get another series of errors ...

The documentation says the installation of the python scripts is as simple
as copying them from the tarball to "/usr/share/current". This is what I
did, but I wonder if things are really that simple. In the tarball for
current-1.6.1 I found the python scripts in a directory named "src". I
copied the contents of this directory, which includes subdirectories, to

However it seems the procedure explained in the documentation is incomplete,
and I'm not sure how to complete it.
