    1 I think this is definitely worth pursuing - it's not that complicated to add and it helps out beginners who are new to the whole manage.py experience. I think people are perhaps over-thinking this: providing 'did you mean' suggestions for typos has a lot of prior art including `git` and the default bash on Ubuntu and shouldn't be complicated or require any interaction.

    33Simply printing out potential candidate commands when the user makes a typo is a quick and easy win IMO. Yes, users could use grep, but that assumes that they are familiar with such tools and are on a system that provides them. Plus learning a new tool like manage.py can be quite hard at the beginning and there is definitely a selection bias here of people who are familiar with Django and unix tooling in general. I wouldn't find this feature useful at all, but someone who is starting out with Django may.
