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

Just a note from talking about this: the basic reason that this is happening is that Django doesn't "know" that Person.pony is actually a foreign key instead of a many-to-many. This is a limitation of GenericRelation; you can't specify the different between a single relation (Person.pony) and multiple ones (Story.comments).

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Fixed in [7285]. It turns out to be logically impossible to always know when this ordering is permissible (see the example in the commit message), so I've removed the safety net.
