If the tutorial is followed to the letter, it will fail to create a working Django app. That's fairly severe, given that the tutorial is for first-time users who may have difficulty troubleshooting Django.
The tutorial doesn't explicitly state the need for:
- The creation of a 500.html file in the templates directory (the tutorial implies it is needed, but should explicitly say so).
- The creation of a detail.html file in the polls directory (I think; I'm still troubleshooting this myself!).
Also, at http://www.djangoproject.com/documentation/0.96/tutorial01/ , the code box under the heading 'The development server' includes the line
Django version 0.95, using settings 'mysite.settings'
... which doesn't seem correct for a tutorial on 0.96. Presumably it should be updated to match the latest version of 0.96.x, and should therefore read
Django version 0.96.2, using settings 'mysite.settings'
until/unless 0.96.3 comes out.
