I have a QuerySet like below

qs1 = Model.objects.all()
qs2 = qs1.all()
qs1 == qs2
output: False

as we know these two QuerySet return the same results.

Thanks for this ticket, however as far as I'm aware it's not feasible to compare two queryset in a performant way (see also Adam's comment). This should take into account all advanced options (e.g. used expressions, prefetching, chosen fields, etc.) and be preceded by an implementation of == operator for the Query class which is even more complicated. Comparing the results is not an option because two completely different queryset can return the same results.

IMO it's not worth the maintenance burden. You can always implement your own hook if comparing results suits you.
