#11929 assigned Cleanup/optimization dumpdata outputs YAML in unhelpful order

Reported by: sampablokuper Owned by: AeroNotix
Component: Core (Serialization) Version: 1.1
Severity: Normal Keywords:
Cc: sam.kuper@… Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: yes Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


The docs suggest providing initial YAML data in the following format:

- model: myapp.person
  pk: 1
    first_name: John
    last_name: Lennon

but the dumpdata outputs YAML in the following form:

-   fields: {first_name: John, last_name: Lennon}
    model: myapp.person
    pk: 1

The fact that this is flow rather than block style YAML is the subject of #11927, but there's another problem, which is that rather than putting the model and PK first (which is most human-readable), dumpdata outputs the fields first.
