Description (last modified by Jannis Leidel)

When I was running ./ syncdb (with sqlite3), a LookupError shows up
as follow. I filed a patch to fix it.

In the UnitTest, I made import locale as inline (Or should I import it at
the beggining of the file?)

bash $ ./ syncdb

Creating table django_admin_log

You just installed Django's auth system, which means you don't have any superusers defined.
Would you like to create one now? (yes/no): yes
