I want to test my GeoDjango project but the index creation a PointField fails.

   db_type = f.db_type(connection=self.connection)
>  if db_type.startswith('varchar'):
E  AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'startswith'

The PointField returns only None in this state. The if statements are only relevant for VARCHAR or TEXT fields but not for Geo Fields.

Indexes for geometry fields should be specified with spatial_index (which defaults to True anyway), not db_index:
