manage.py collectstatic not done when publishing
This used to be done automatically in PTVS 2.0 RTM when publishing. The collected static files were published (even though they are not included in the project).
Download the tutorial project (link is in django tutorial on codeplex)
Create virtual env, install django
Run locally to make sure everything is fine
Publish to Azure Web Site
You'll see that the style sheet isn't loaded -- the text is regular color and there's no background image.
I looked in the project folder, and the obj/release/package/packagetmp folders, and I don't see a static folder containing the collected files.
