windows svn install: PYTHONPATH should include django-trunk not django-trunk\django

Reported by: Richard D. Worth <rdworth@…> Owned by: nobody
Component: Documentation Version: master
Severity: Keywords: PYTHONPATH windows install
Cc: Triage Stage: Ready for checkin
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: UI/UX:


The documentation/install/ page instructs the reader to create a PYTHONPATH environment variable in Windows to allow for 'import django'. The line reads:

"you can define your PYTHONPATH environment variable so that it includes the django subdirectory of django-trunk."

I found this allowed for import of modules underneath django (ex. import bin), but not for django itself. Suggested change:

"you can define your PYTHONPATH environment variable so that it includes the django-trunk directory."

I have only tested this on windows with rev6718. Don't know if it effects/will work on other OS.
