#20325 closed Uncategorized (duplicate)

`--template` argument to `startapp` and `startproject` has incorrect help text.

The help text says the --template argument on any TemplateCommand is the dotted import path to load templates from. Looking at the code and the docs reveals that this is not true. It is a local file system path that is passed through expanduser() and normpath(). The docs also use an HTTP URL to a GitHub zipball as an example.
