Admin tag/view docstrings needed

Little, easy improvements

Here's a list of various improvements that we'd like to make to Django. Some are trivial, some are a bit more substantial, but all are easy enough to be a quick project for people who want to get involved with Django development.

Document modelsmagic-removal now displays the models docstrings in the admin documentation pages. Models in django should have a nice docstring suitable for endusersakaiholaIn progress #1422, pointers to more docs needed
Quick Copy to pastebinCreate a one click link for users to send the "copy friendly errors" to http://django.pastebin.com with the input fields filled in with the traceback, ready for the user to hit "submit" Dirk Datzert, dummy at habmalnefrage dot de #2437
Test one of the active branches?Branches are large or experimental features that are not yet ready for general use. If you see one you like, testing is a great way to help get finished and included in Django.perennial
Document admin templatetags/viewsProvide docstrings which will supply useful, ReST-formatted documentation for the views and templatetags in the admin app, including context variables and template names.Partially worked on in #1834

Unit tests for default template filtersEvery template filter (see django/core/template/defaultfilters.py) should have unit tests in tests/othertests/templates.py. Most do not have tests.Luke Plant, L.Plant.98@…Done in [1811]
Unit tests for default template tagsEvery template tag (see django/template/defaulttags.py) should have unit tests in tests/othertests/templates.py. Some are missing.Nick Efford, nick (at) efford.netMostly done in [1944] and completed by others since then
Copy-friendly traceback on error pagesThe debug error pages should provide an extra traceback solely for copying and pasting. The current traceback is really cool but doesn't lend itself to easy copy-and-paste for, say, the pastebin.Joao Paulo Farias, jpaulofarias at gmail dot com Done, see #1420
Terminal colors in django-adminThe django-admin.py utility would be friendlier and slicker if it used terminal colors.Scott Lees #1491
Tab-completion actions for django-admindjango-admin.py would be much cooler if it would tab complete actions and models.paolo <paolo@…> Done #1240
