I could only get the Generic Views to work after I gave the detail view a name 'poll_details' in the urlpatterns and updated index.html to have line:

<li><a href="{% url poll_details %}">{{ }}. {{ poll.question }}</a></li>

I just built up this tutorial, and it runs just fine leaving the link in index.html as so:

 <a href="/polls/{{ }}/">{{ poll.question }}</a> 

As the url reversal template tag isn't even introduced in the "first Django app" tut, I think it may be better to leave as is. The extra step you took is, as they say, an exercise for the reader.
