Review Request #1447 — Created March 4, 2010 and submitted
Add support for custom site-specific management commands. This change introduces the ability to write custom management commands specific to a site installation. This uses standard Django management commands. They can be placed in the site's commands/ directory. `rb-site manage` will look for Python files in this directory and add them to the known list of management commands. Today, adding them to the list is pretty hacky, but there aren't any other options. We will probably want to request the ability to cleanly register new commands in Django. It works though, and we can update it if needed down the road.
Built a sample 'mytest' management command and put it in the commands/ directory of a site. Ran 'rb-site manage /path/to/site mytest' and saw the output from the management command.
