I have this in my

and this in my

If I go to http://localhost:8000/admin/doc/models/auth.user/

  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset

This might be related to docutils, because:

  • under Debian Lenny (docutils 0.5-2) there's no problem
  • under Debian Squeeze (docutils 0.6-3) there's the bug
