I want to filter all products that the start_date and signed_date are lesser than or equal than a specific value.

Before 1.7, I was doing the following:

            where=['"appname_product"."start_date" - "appname_product"."signed_date" <= %s' % days],

Now, I tried to do the following using F expressions:


The problem, this will raise a TypeError because I think it will try to parse the value to Date:

This ticket seems really familiar, but I can't seem to find a duplicate at the moment. I'll keep hunting for it. In the mean time, there's a workaround for what you want to do:

Product.objects.annotate(days=ExpressionWrapper(F('start_date')-F('signed_date'), output_field=DurationField())).filter(days__lte=2)

That works on Postgres at least, I'm not sure how other backends handle it.

I think Combinable._combine() may need special handling for date - date producing durations though.
