     647The ``__init__()`` method of the syndication framework's ``Feed`` class now
    648648take an ``HttpRequest`` object as its second parameter, instead of the feed's
    649649URL. This allows the syndication framework to work without requiring the sites

    665665     1. Use :class:`django.utils.datastructures.SortedDict` wherever you were
    666666        using ``django.newforms.forms.SortedDictFromList``.
    667667
    668      2. Because :meth:`django.utils.datastructures.SortedDict.copy` returns a
    669         deepcopy as ``SortedDictFromList`` method did, you will need to update
    670         your code if you were relying on a deepcopy. Do this by using
     668     2. Because :meth:`django.utils.datastructures.SortedDict.copy` doesn't

     670        to update your code if you were relying on a deepcopy. Do this by using
    671671        ``copy.deepcopy`` directly.
