Building a VM and installing askbot is the plan.

most of the dependencies for askbot are installed via apt-get.

askbot wants to "pip install" lots more. A concern here is it does not do any checking for package validity or even validity of itself when downloading and installing software. Further, keeping the various python modules up to date apparently isn't covered through pip or anything else.

I'm talking to someone about hosting askbot for us, customizing it for the look and feel we want, and letting them deal with the security issues in askbot. I realize the risks in using a 3rd party, but tor browser exists to mitigate most of the risks.

Replying to phobos:

askbot wants to "pip install" lots more.

My Debian'ist 2 cents: if "lots more" is less that 20, then it may be worth to email the Python modules packaging team to explain why they would be needed, and ask for them to be packaged. (I'm not sure about the Python team, but if it were the Perl one, I can tell that it would not seem impossible at all to see the team package them all promptly, once established they would be useful to someone.)
