class MyArticleAdminForm(forms.ModelForm):
    class Meta:

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

Why is this a problem?

It’s misleading and confusing. Meta classes aren’t used any more, and we don’t need someone to look at it a wonder what it is. If we change it to albiwry = "The last starfighter" it’ll do the exact same thing.

Sorry. I just noticed that this was a ModelForm, not ModelAdmin. My bad.
