If I open and put the following code

        if filename.endswith(""):
            print 'MODEL: ', filename
        elif filename.endswith(""):
            print 'FORM: ', filename

I can see all my and djangos models, also forms it' uses, but none from my app:

MODEL:  ..../python2.7/site-packages/django/contrib/staticfiles/
FORM:  ..../python2.7/site-packages/django/contrib/auth/
MODEL:  ..../python2.7/site-packages/compressor/

Putting the following code into MY_APP/ works as a workaround, although doesn't seem ideal:

  import forms

Last bit of info for now - here's the (not recommended) I came up with to reload forms and tests automatically:

    from django.conf import settings
    if settings.DEBUG:
        import forms, tests

By design, the development server only reloads code that it's actually using.

If isn't used, what's the point in reloading the development server when it's changed?
