     151In [5172], the various generic relation classes (!GenericForeignKey and !GenericRelation) have moved into the django.contrib.contenttypes module. This is because they will not work if contenttypes is not an installed app. Making the import path reflect the dependency should help remind people of this.

     153Code using generic relations should change from saying things like
     154{{{
     155#!python
     156generic_field = models.GenericRelation(SomeOtherModel)
     157}}}
     158to using
     159{{{
     160#!python
     161from django.contrib.contenttypes import generic
     162...
     163generic_field = generic.GenericRelation(SomeOtherModel)
     164}}}
     165
     166No database changes or other model changes are required.
