Why do we represent empty ForeignKey fields with "(None)" instead of using an empty <td></td> ?

  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset

(None) seems more accurate than nothing to me, since it's set to NULL, not just an empty string or such (which doesn't fit with an fkey)

Because it is None.

Replying to ubernostrum:

Because it is None.

Then we should uniform displaying of None fields and None ForeignKeys since normally fields are displayed as "None" while empty foreignkeys are displayed as "(None)"
