On the website, please add Archlinux ( as a distribution that supports django. A sample explanatory text is as follows:

There are two options available for a repository-controlled installation of django.
The first option is the availability of django in the 'extra' repository. The availability of this repository on the system allows for the package to be installed with the magic of 'pacman -S django'.
The second option is to install an svnbuild of the package. This package can be found on the Archlinux AUR, and can be easily installed with the yaourt program. Using yaourt as a user with sudo access allows for a relative safe way to install user-made packages.
There are multiple other django packages on the AUR. You have for example the django-utils package that can be installed in a similar fashion using yaourt.

You can add and maintain this yourself to the Wiki, creating a ad-hoc wiki page if no suitable page describing the setup under different Linux distributions exist yet.

I don't know if it would be a good idea to add info with details about the installation of Django in every Linux distro and every package management system to the documentation.

This should go into the "distributions" doc.

This ticket has been deprecated by #10424. Distro-specific material will be moved to the Django Wiki. I have added your sample text to that page.
