Description

The FAQ at http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/faq/install/ states:

Should I use the official version or development version?
The Django developers improve Django every day and are pretty good about not checking in broken code. We use the development code (from the Subversion repository) directly on our servers, so we consider it stable. With that in mind, we recommend that you use the latest development code, because it generally contains more features and fewer bugs than the “official” releases.

Now that Django has a release schedule, I would imagine it to be advisable for the general public to use Django releases by default and only if they want the cutting edge should the follow trunk (or a branch for that matter). See the patch for my proposal on updating the text.
