'max_length=200' should be replaced by 'maxlength=200' in part 1 of django tutorial

In the following example from part 1 of the django tutorial, when I tried running 'python sql polls', I got a TypeError: init() got an unexpected keyword argument 'max_length'. The error disappeared when I changed 'max_length=200' to 'maxlength=200'. Is this an error in the tutorial documentation?



from django.db import models

class Poll(models.Model):

question = models.CharField(max_length=200)
pub_date = models.DateTimeField('date published')

class Choice(models.Model):

poll = models.ForeignKey(Poll)
choice = models.CharField(max_length=200)
votes = models.IntegerField()
