Re: Which python-django version for yakkety?

I'd recommend staying on 1.8; while 1.10 will be supported through the end of 2017, 1.8 is an LTS release, and a reasonable target for e.g third-party extensions to continue to build on top of. Switching this close to FF seems risky for minor benefit. 

Shipping 1.10 in Debian makes sense, since we're hoping to be able to include 1.11 LTS in stretch.

Hi All,

python-django in yakkety is currently at 1.8.7 while sid is at 1.10.  I think we need to carefully consider whether we want to update python-django in yakkety at this point in time (we're 16 days until feature freeze), as there will be side-effects if we move to 1.10. 

There's an outstanding merge request that I just commented on here:

The move to 1.10 in sid has caused quite a bit of breakage. It looks like a number of upstream projects are not updated yet to handle django 1.10 feature changes. One example is horizon, see Thomas' patches here, and he's not done fixing things: https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/openstack/horizon.git/log/?h=debian/newton

I understand that the following packages have also required patches thus far:  django-classy-tags django-nose python-django-babel python-django-bootstrap-form python-django-formtools python-django-openstack-auth python-django-sekizai python-django-appconf python-django-babel python-django-bootstrap-form python-django-compressor python-django-formtools python-django-openstack-auth python-django-overextends python-django-pyscss.

Does anyone have any more insight or thoughts on this?
