I found instructions for installing the cell server at [README.rst][1] from the github repository, but the IT administrator encountered the following problems and gave up:
* The instrucitons refer to sage 5.0, which is quite old by now, and to a sage [notebook patch][5], which has already been marked as fixed and merged.
* [sagecell-0.9.0.spkg][6] is a broken link and the natural guess at the latest [sagecell spkg][4] fails when applying to sage 5.6.
Perhaps I should have read the instructions more closely before forwarding them to him. I've now found the compiled [documentation][2], including the [advanced installation][3] instructions.
My administrator is willing to try again if I can find some up-to-date instructions, but I would like to be sure they will work :) Are the advanced installation instructions still accurate (aside from referring to an old version of sage), or do they need to be modified?
