    initial v1  
    1 The validation issue is a bug in `DecimalField`. `DecimalField` calls `value.as_tuple()` and unconditionally takes the absolute value of the third argument (`exponent`) as the number of decimal places. This is just wrong, because it's perfectly valid for exponent to be positive, and in that case it doesn't represent a number of decimal places at all, it represents trailing zeros.

    33The other issue (quantize error) I can't reproduce and I don't think is related. Please open as a separate ticket with full reproduction instructions (including version of Python, since that's an error coming directly from Python's decimal module).
