We're migrating from 1.1 to 1.3 - we have a directory


This worked fine in 1.1 with {% load %} in the template. In 1.3 this breaks. In django.template.base.get_library loops through templatetag_modules pairing modules and libraries and calling import_library. On line 951 of

app_path, taglib = taglib_module.rsplit('.',1)
app_module = import_module(app_path)

That rsplit left my "tagmodule" in the app_path, which then failed to import as it was paired with another path.

Reorganizing my templatetags under deadline, just wanted to mention it.

I confirm that this regression was introduced in [12944]. I'll try to work on a patch.

On a second thought, I'm not sure we should allow this. If your concern is to break large templatetag libraries into multiple files, then you still can do it by doing "from foo import *" in the main module's file. If you have a more compelling reason for allowing this behaviour, then please reopen with more details.
