When inspectdb is used with mysql it can also figure out the number of decimal places for FloatFields and integer places for IntegerFields.

the addition to inspectdb in is:

                if field_type == 'FloatField':
                    extra_params['decimal_places'] = row[5]

                if field_type =='IntegerField':
                    extra_params['max_digits'] = row[3]

I was not able to figure out how to get max_digits for FloatFields, suggestions welcome.

Ups, I was a bit hasty. IntegerField does not support max_digits even though you can limit this in MySql.

So the correct addition would be:

                if field_type == 'FloatField':
                    extra_params['decimal_places'] = row[5]
