Django has:

  • "real defaults" in django/conf/global_settings.py which are immutable and must guarantee backwards compatibility,
  • "defaults defaults" in the project template which allow some flexibility.

Confusing, but handy.

If you remove STATIC_URL from your settings files Django will use None.
