Document i18n of localflavor

Description

django.contrib.localflavor has its own catalog of translations, but it's not loaded automatically like the main django catalog in django/conf/locale/. django.contrib.localflavor must be added to INSTALLED_APPS for the catalog to be loaded.

This behaviour should be documented in the localflavor documentation, because localflavor's functionality (mainly form fields) doesn't require the app to be in INSTALLED_APPS. In addition, users may expect these translations to be automatically available, being localflavor a part of Django.

I include a patch for docs/ref/contrib/localflavor.txt explaining this.

See also this thread in django-developers.

  • Needs documentation unset

BTW I think the documentation should be updated both for trunk and in the 1.3 branch.
