#1768 closed defect (fixed)

Erroneous discussion of repr in docs/tutorial02.txt?

Under Customize the admin change list, docs/tutorial02.txt states that "By default, Django displays the repr of each object."

Should that read "Django displays the str of each object" ?

When I give a model class a __str__ method, the value returned by that method is what the admin interface displays, regardless of whether there is a __repr__ method defined. The only time that __repr__ seems to be called is when there is no
__str__ defined.
