This week we upgraded to from 1.3 -> 1.5, and discovered BigAutoField was not yet included in Django. I know this issue has been referenced in a number of tickets over the years. In Django 1.3, we went with the mmcnickle approach discussed in ticket 14286 (, but found this difficult to merge into 1.5.

This time, we went with the approach approach suggested by pzinovkin in ticket 56 ( It required tweaking to get it to work cleanly with 1.5

Attached are patches derived from a git clone this morning.
