The last I heard of the idea was during the 1.9 release cycle when Elky worked on the redesign:

I don't plan to make admin responsive yet (to make it perfectly accessible on mobile) - just because we can't control third-party apps. Ideally django should have its own css framework for that but not in near future I think.

Someone interested in working on this will need to write a proposal to the DevelopersMailingList. Until that happens, I think the idea isn't concrete enough to keep a ticket open about it.

I'm no expert at css at all, but isn't there something between "fully responsive with own css framework" and "not responsive at all" ?

I think we could improve usability on mobile without going too far in modifying the admin. There's already a sensible change just by adding a viewport meta and removing some fixed width elements.

Wouldn't that be a valid strategy ? (improving instead of changing)
If so, could this ticket be reopened ?

Thanks !

Lets get a consensus on the DevelopersMailingList. We likely don't have people who could provide feedback about this monitoring Trac.

Elky continued his efforts with the flat design and released a responsive theme as a separate package: https://github.com/elky/django-flat-responsive
