Description (last modified by ramiro)
I've built a simple test project with one app and two models, Model1 and Model2.
Model2 has a ManyToManyField to Model1.
I've created one Model1 instance and one Model2 instance with a relation to the Model1 instance.
When saving the Model2 instance in the admin, even without a change, m2m_changed fires twice.
I think it shouldn't fire at all when the admin form is saved without a change:
sender <class 'testproject.testapp.models.Model2_models1'> instance Model2 object action clear model <class 'testproject.testapp.models.Model1'> sender <class 'testproject.testapp.models.Model2_models1'> instance Model2 object action add model <class 'testproject.testapp.models.Model1'>
