#18780 closed Cleanup/optimization (duplicate)

Set stacklevel when warning about depreciated function views

It would be handy if the depreciation warning messages gave a clue as to the cause of warning. This can be done by adding severity to the warning.


import warnings
    'Function-based generic views have been deprecated; use class-based views instead.',
    DeprecationWarning, stacklevel=2

Actually, it may be a good idea to always set stacklevel appropriately (is 2 always the "right" value?) wherever Django raises a DeprecationWarning.

All DeprecationWarning are now stacklevel=2. I made no changes to PendingDeprecationWarning.
