Description (last modified by Tim Graham)

The help_text_for_field function in contrib/admin/utils returns 'None' if field.help_text is None.
Needs to following statements:

       if hasattr(field, 'help_text'):
            help_text = field.help_text


     help_text = getattr(field, 'help_text', '')

Is there a reason for using help_text=None as opposed to an empty string?

Closing as "won't fix" pending a justification of why support for help_text=None is needed.
