#21036 closed New feature (duplicate)

Note that __unicode__ is __str__ in python 3

The documentation at does not mention the change in Python 3 where __unicode__ does not exist and __str__ now returns unicode strings. Would be nice to put it in as I didn't know this about python 3 until I looked up why the tutorial code wasn't working.

IIRC there's a stern warning at the beginning of the tutorial that it's written for Python 2.

I intend to migrate it to Python 3, and reverse the warning, for the 1.7 release but haven't done it yet.

I thought there was a ticket covering that, but I can't find it, so I'll just accept this one.

We fixed it in 1.6 and up in ticket #19211. I didn't backport the patch at that time, but I think we could safely do it.
