#19069 closed Cleanup/optimization (fixed)

improve error when attempting to use a swapped model

Currently two checks for a swapped model exist when creating a manager:

These result in an error:

AttributeError: type object 'User' has no attribute 'objects'

as opposed to DatabaseError: no such table: <...> which is the error when the model is swapped but has the default manager (as syncdb will not create tables for swapped models). Ideally - there should be a manager installed that just raises an error explaining that the model has been swapped and is unavailable and probably offer information about what model it was swapped for - as this is readily available.
