I followed the instruction in the "Writing your first patch for Django" page and in order to install the tests requirements I had to install python-dev, zlib and libmemcached. The page mentions neither of them.

The tutorial says:

If you encounter an error during the installation, your system might be missing a dependency for one or more of the Python packages. Consult the failing package’s documentation or search the Web with the error message that you encounter.

The issue has been raised before and the consensus is that it's not Django's job to document all the possibilities for various operating systems.
