#15214 closed Cleanup/optimization (duplicate)

CharField's widget_attrs should return an empty dict rather than None

When self.max_length is None or widget is not a TextInput or PasswordInput instance, no return value is specified.

Returning None can break things when a dict is expected. Theoretically, it should probably call the superclass' widget_attrs and update the dict with its own values (if the conditions are met). In practice, I'm not sure the super call really matters.

In practice, this doesn't really matter -- the existing uses of widget_attrs (essentially just in the constructor for a field) check for a null response. However, that check could be removed entirely if CharField did the right thing.

This is a duplicate of #15912. Closing this one since the other has a patch.
