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. If you don't feel like a python coder you can always help with documentation needing patches or, between coding and documenting, you can give a hand with the patches needing tests, or patches that need some other improvement.

As you see, there are lots of things you can do to improve Django and get you involved with it!

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 Done in [2585] (was #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
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
#3346Document that Admin search_fields can be from related modelsRobert Myers and Gary WilsonIn trunk as of [4392]
#2762Implement "copyright" element into Rss2.0 framework (and appropriate elements in Atom etc) Jonathan (dot) Buchanan (at gmail dot com) In trunk as of [4478]
