Description

Ok on this page:
https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/howto/initial-data/#providing-initial-sql-data

I think it would be nice to add that if for some reason you're using models as a directory with init.py that import every sub modules in there, you need to actually move the sql folder inside your models folder.

So to be clear:
usual setups is :
my_app/

sql/

mymodel.sql

models.py --> myModel

the setup that needs documentation:
my_app/

models/

mymodelgroup.py --> myModel
anothermodelgroup.py --> anotherModel
sql/

mymodel.sql

There is no info anywhere about this, I don't know if it's a feature or a bug by the way.
But it make sense I think to move the sql script inside the models folder it it's actually a folder.

Cheers!
