The example for manipulating session variables at this url does not work as documented:
def test_something(self): session = self.client.session session['somekey'] = 'test' session.save()
The test client returns a dictionary rather than a session object, unless a session object is manually added to the client or a view is called that initiates a session.
Attached is a patch that modifies the client to return a session object whenever django.contrib.sessions is installed.
