Description (last modified by Jacob)

The docs lead one to expect that given an app name Profile, a AUTH_PROFILE_MODULE setting of profile.modelname would work, but Profile.modelname is actually correct.

http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/auth/#auth-profiles claims that AUTH_PROFILE_MODULE is "The (normalized to lower-case) name of the application in which the user profile model is defined (in other words, an all-lowercase version of the name which was passed to manage.py startapp to create the application)."

This is wrong; the app_label part is the a python module, and hence case-sensitive.

[trimmed excessive explanation; this is actually a very simple doc fix]

Check how it works. Conclusion:

  1. the name of the application is case sensitive
  1. the name of the model is case insensitive

I've attached a patch to auth.txt and also concluded that the text in chapter 12 of the book is fine and doesn't need to be updated.
