** Structure should have repo directory then django project directory under it.
** Only files that are committed to the repo are used in deployment.
** Make sure to not have any other .git projects/directories in your project
other than the one at the top level. This causes problems like not finding
settings files, etc.
** <project> refers to the 'main' project where your git repository (.git
directory resides)
** <project_name> refers to the 'main' django project directory (were
settings.py resides)
