#18827 closed Bug (fixed)

Exclude __pycache__ from module detection

If you make a typo in the database backend you get this error message on Python 3:

Try using django.db.backends.XXX, where XXX is one of:
    '__pycache__', 'dummy', 'mysql', 'oracle', 'postgresql_psycopg2', 'sqlite3'

At least __pycache__ should be filtered out. Maybe dummy too.

It would be nice to check if this pattern occurs in other places in Django.

(One more reason not to attempt listing modules in a package...)
