Wrong default on isolation level in queryset documentation

Reported by: guileseur@… Owned by: nobody

Hi Django folks,

https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.6/ref/models/querysets/ says that "If you are using MySQL, be sure to use the READ COMMITTED isolation level rather than REPEATABLE READ (the default)" while https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.6/ref/databases/#isolation-level says that "READ COMMITTED" is the default.
I think this changed with the 1.6 version and that the first link did not get updated.

The two links are talking about different databases: he default isolation level for mysql is REPEATABLE READ (1st link) while it's READ COMMITED for postgresql (2nd link).
