We still need to import decimal in 2.4, we just don't need to the one in django.utils.

  • Triage Stage changed from Unreviewed to Accepted

In past we've said we didn't want to do this because it makes backporting patches harder, I don't think that's accurate. So we should do this (and delete the decimal backport).

I've refreshed the patch on current trunk. I also deleted the django/utils/ file.

  • milestone set to 1.2
  • Triage Stage changed from Accepted to Design decision needed

We need to get a design decision on this before 1.2RC

Russ, Karen and I discussed this the other day and I think the consensus was that it was probably a good idea, as we've had accidental backports that caused Python 2.3 breakages. Doing it in one fell-swoop avoids that possibility.
