https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/releases/1.7/#schema-migrations states "initial_data fixtures are no longer loaded for apps with migrations; if you want to load initial data for an app, we suggest you do it in a migration."
However https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.7/howto/initial-data/#automatically-loading-initial-data-fixtures states: "If you create a fixture named initial_data.[xml/yaml/json], that fixture will be loaded every time you run migrate. This is extremely convenient, but be careful: remember that the data will be refreshed every time you run migrate. So don’t use initial_data for data you’ll want to edit."
I'm assuming, given the first statement in the release notes, that the 2nd only applies to applications without migrations? That 2nd citation needs to be updated to make it clear that this ONLY applies to apps without migrations (which may come across rather oddly...run migrate to load your initial data for apps w/out migrations...but I assume that IS the case?)
