Description

Just had a user in #django using the development version because they'd read https://www.djangoproject.com/download/ which says

"""
Option 2. Get the latest development version
The latest and greatest Django version is the one that's in our Git repository (our revision-control system). Get it using this shell command, which requires Git:
"""

with no warning (akin to https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.7/intro/install/) about how using stable might be more sensible. PR incoming to attempt to fix that.

As per CLA section 7 this is not my original creation but a derivation of existing Django documentation; its source and license are thus presumably that of Django, though it is not "submitted on behalf of" any third party...

In 200d475831bc58d915ecb8feeaee08660afb4bab/djangoproject.com:

Fixed #23856 -- Warned about downloading development version

Replicated the warning from
https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.7/intro/install/ about how the
development version is best used by those with experience looking to
test.
