#15582 closed Bug (fixed)

Docs don't mention that TestCase.multi_db affects test fixtures

Description

From reading http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.2/topics/testing/#django.test.TestCase.fixtures
I wouldn't guess that you have to do anything special to load fixtures in multi-database setups.

And http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.2/topics/testing/#django.test.TestCase.multi_db
says nothing about fixtures. A strict reading would make me think multi_db only affects cleaning databases and maybe loading initial_data fixtures; it doesn't say that it affects loading the fixtures from TestCase.fixtures.

Perhaps that's implied, but I think it should be explicit.

This is especially confusing because there is no output from the test runner at all about fixture loading, either success or failure.
