Since I haven't used Django for half a year, I've been (re)-learning Django by following the dev version of the 4-part tutorial. I've reached tutorial part 2 and that was the part where I was puzzled and reached a stumbling block. I go to /admin/ and the page is a welcome page, not the admin login site as indicated in tutorial. I was able to solve the problem by reading the instructions inside; those instructions tell me to uncomment certain lines inside

There's no documentation within the tutorial02.txt that explicitly states that the user must uncomment the lines in in order for the user to access the admin site. I would be happy to make a doc patch to clarify this aspect of the tutorial02.txt.

This version of the tutorial applies to the development version of Django. The soon to be released version 1.6 will have a changed default project layout which does have the admin enabled by default.

Note that the 1.5 tutorial does indeed have this comment:
