Just noticed the following in 1.3.
(correct me if I'm wrong) But it seems that if you want to use static files in a vanilla install you have to do one of the following: 1. Have a line in urls.py to point to your static files (link) 2. Put SATIC_ROOT in STATICFILES_DIRS (link)
Is there any chance that one of the above can be set as a default or that the docs can reflect this?
BTW just like to commend the document keeps for describing (what could be construed as complex) 'collectstatic' in a succinct way. I was able to follow this change between version without trouble. Thank you.
