#1756 closed defect (fixed)

[patch] FilePathField gives no blank option in admin when blank=True is set

I have a model with this field:

image = models.FilePathField(path='/my/path', blank=True, null=True)

In the admin interface, the image field shows up dimmed like the rest
of the optional fields. However the select list lists all the files in
/my/path, without any blank option. So you are in effect forced to
select a file.

The patch adds models.BLANK_CHOICE_DASH to the choices list if is_required is false.

This patch is unacceptable because the form layer shouldn't be importing from the database layer.
