I am trying to implement a similar feature as https://code.djangoproject.com/ticket/24810 for my app, which uses Django. The details aren't really important, but my goal is to add custom retry logic depending on what exception is received and what the cause was. So I need to know what the different django.db.utils.Error subtypes mean and what situations they get raised in.

I have looked at the docs:

And the source code:

But there is nothing written about what the different database exceptions mean.

It's documented that "Django wrappers for database exceptions behave exactly the same as the underlying database exceptions. See PEP 249, the Python Database API Specification v2.0, for further information." There is no need to copy descriptions from PEP 249 into Django docs.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
