Description

In "Writing your first Django app, part 1" I encountered a problem with immporting the timezone utility. I eventually discovered it's because this function isn't available with the version of Django that ships with Ubuntu. Maybe you could mention this somewhere in the tutorial for us noobs out there.

Agreed - we have had many bugs filed due to people unwittingly using a version of the tutorial that doesn't match the version of Django they are using. I think it's time to actually add a step at the beginning of the tutorial where we have users check their Django version and make sure it matches, and if it doesn't, direct them to the appropriate tutorial version.

Indeed, that would really be a worthy addition.
