#8242 closed (fixed)

INSTALLED_APPS with "foo.*" not populated consistently

On different filesystems, but using the same list of INSTALLED_APPS, the final populated list of INSTALLED_APPS can vary.

os.listdir's return list is arbitrary, so that the apps are loaded differently.

The most obvious display of this issue is where foo.* apps are listed in the admin index. However, applications might also expect to be initialized in a stable order, and Django's globbing currently fails at that.

I think simply sorting the results of listdir would address this.
Obviously, providing consistent tests for this is difficult, but I have observed it in the wild.
