"Fixture loading",

does not go into any considerable details as how to name the files in the subfolder 'fixtures'.

It's be nice if it says something like: 'Fixture files generated by "./ dumpdata" have to reside in subfolder 'fixtures' of the application being tested and file names must correspond to the strings in the 'fixtures' array of testing class'

The docs already point to the loaddata docs, which explain how fixtures are named, and where they should be placed.
