New Site.root field

I'd like to propose a new 'root' field for django.contrib.sites.models.Site, useful for sites that are deployed under a subdirectory, e.g. ""; Site.root here would be "mysite". The obvious use case is for exposing full urls instead of absolute paths that Django produces and consumes internally, but it may have other usages.

  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset
  • Triage Stage changed from Unreviewed to Design decision needed

Adding this will break old apps on upgrade, so it's not a trivial addition.

Not a bad idea, but we'd have to wait until some method in core for updating before adding a field to a core model (for a relatively edge use case) is acceptable.

An alternative might be pluggable sites models. See also #2618.

I think it would be a better use of time to try moving the Site model to a setting as discussed on the mailing list.
