#19695 closed Bug (fixed)

Static files for forms described as "Form Media"

Description

https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/forms/media/

This is confusing. In Django, "media" == "user-uploaded files".

The code be docs should be refactored to call them something else: "form static files", "form static assets", "form assets" -- anything but "form media"!

I tend to agree with Marc's comment on the pull request that it's confusing to relabel these as "assets" and yet the class is still called "Media". If we rename docs/topics/forms/media.txt to assets.txt should we also add a redirect so incoming links don't break (I'm guessing this would be a change to djangoproject.git but I'm not sure)?
