Description (last modified by timgraham)
Currently the index_together tuples do not support index ordering using + / -.
If I have the following table:
class Messages: user_id, rating, last_update, index_together=[ ['user_id', 'rating', 'last_update',] # sorted ASC by default ]
So for MySQL, the following query cannot make use of the index:
Pardon me if it actually can make use of the index.
I know there are workarounds, such as negating values to make a DESC ordering become ASC ordering.
But it is just nice to have such a feature.
Btw, what is the reason for not having this feature?
