Description

The same phrase is in description for both dumpdata and loaddata commands:

The --database option can be used to specify the database onto which the data will be loaded.

https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/django-admin/

This is also applicable to the internal help of the dumpdata command prior to Django 1.4.

python manage.py help loaddata
python manage.py help dumpdata

In Django 1.3.1, output of these two commands contained this phrase:

Nominates a specific database to load fixtures into. Defaults to the "default" database.

So, I think the documentation for the dumpdata command should be updated to look something like this:

The --database option can be used to specify the database from which the data will be dumped.
