#24758 closed Bug (fixed)

Incorrect docstring in Options.get_fields()

According to the docstring for Options.get_fields():

Returns a list of fields associated to the model. By default will only return forward fields.

However, the call to _get_fields does not set reverse=False when its default is True. I can't really tell if this was intentional or not. I would be happy to make a patch / pull request to fix this either way.
