The line "The admin files live in (django/contrib/admin/static/admin) of the Django distribution." is incorrect, since these files actually live in django/contrib/admin/media and there is a special case the in static files AppStaticStorage class which looks in "media" instead and prefixes with "admin"

Indeed, the media files still live in django/contrib/admin/media in Django 1.3. This error was introduced at r16492.

The fix must be done only on the 1.3.X branch; the docs are correct for trunk.
