Description (last modified by aaugustin)
I brought this issue up earlier today at DjangoCon, but the basic issue can be summarized hence:
- User searches to find info on a specific feature, gets directed to dev documentation.
- Said feature (on the development version) is backwards incompatible with previous versions of Django.
- User does not know better, assumes Django has a bug.
- Invalid bug is filed in trac.
EDIT: rejected proposal removed, see comment 4.
