Description

Now that there are no issues with easy_install Django, I think that it should be mentioned as an alternative method of install on the docs.

Perhaps pip as well - http://pypi.python.org/pypi/pip

I think at least one BDFL would argue that pip is a more important (perhaps exclusively so) inclusion --
"Really, you shouldn’t be using easy_install any more — please switch to pip." [1]

I suggest amending this to include both, or pip only.

#16471 was a duplicate. It has a list of references to easy_install and pip in the current docs.

This is tightly linked to #9112 which is a release blocker. For the sake of clarity, I'm marking this ticket as a release blocker too.

While I totally agree this needs to be done, we shouldn't recommend installing the python-pip package as it is incredibly out of date on most distributions.

Instead I'd suggest to follow the installation instructions on http://www.pip-installer.org/en/latest/installing.html
