#7986 closed (fixed)

Documentation for prepopulated_fields isn't very clear

Presently, the prepopulated_fields documentation doesn't really say what prepopulated_fields actually does. Specifically, it doesn't mention that it is designed for use with SlugFields.

Pre-NFA, this functionality was enabled by the prepoulate_from argument in SlugField. This tight-coupling made what it does more obvious.

I'll attach a patch to clarify the documentation.
