Description

In assertRedirects method of TestCase, the named parameter "target_status_code" should, according to the documentation, test the status code of the final point of the redirect chain. It is compared to the status code of the first redirecting response instead.

This is how the code is:

url, status_code = response.redirect_chain[-1]

self.assertEqual(response.status_code, target_status_code,
    msg_prefix + "Response didn't redirect as expected: Final"
    " Response code was %d (expected %d)" %
    (response.status_code, target_status_code))

Unless I've misunderstood something, the last line there should use "status_code" instead of "response.status_code".

As far as I can make out, the current behaviour is correct, and there are a number of test cases in the test_client_regress suite to verify that the behavior works as expected. If you made the change you describe, you would be testing against the response from the last redirect, not the response that served the final page.
