(This is essentially a re-opening of #1342, which was marked as fixed despite the fact that the ability to customize
MAX_SHOW_ALL_ALLOWED was never actually implemented. Some discussion here.)
In a nutshell,
MAX_SHOW_ALL_ALLOWED is currently fixed at 200 and hard coded in
contrib/admin/views/main.py. Minimally, this should be configurable in some way shape or form outside of modifying Django source code. Ideally, we should be able to modify the value on a per site and per model basis.
I will be working on a patch to address this. Any comments or suggestions are welcome.
Some discussion here.
