Hello all, HNY!

Apologies for resurrecting this thread after so long. Just by way of a
quick update I've written a new guide to getting a clean/empty KBPlus up
and running on AWS. The docs are here:
https://github.com/k-int/KBPlus/wiki/KBPlus--AWS-Install-Guide and if
anyone wants to have a go at using KBPlus locally I'd be really interested
in feedback. I'm afraid it's a bit technical, and it does go into some
depth on installing the shib auth part, but hopefully it will be of use to
anyone wanting to have a go.

best,
Ian.
