Description

In the instructions to install Django development version from svn [1] the line of code to create the simlink from django_src/django uses a path that includes python2.3 it should be noted that this should be replaces with the path to the python the users has otherwise django-admin.py would fail with this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "/usr/local/bin/django-admin.py", line 2, in ?

from django.core import management

ImportError: No module named django.core

It is trivial to fix the problem but it could take some users by suprise.
This is the line with the problem:
ln -s pwd/django_src/django /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages

It clearly says just under that line:

(In the above line, change python2.3 to match your current Python version.)
