It says the following:
- When fixture files are processed, the data is saved to the database as is. Model defined save methods and pre_save signals are not called.
However, it does not make specific mention about other signals. Recommend making the text explicit so that readers understand that other signals not mentioned here will be called (post_save et al).
Let's say you're testing on a local server and you have use post_save to send emails or other notifications. loaddata will resend all emails on load. This is behaviour that, in a test environment, one may wish to avoid.
