ANN: new-admin branch merged to trunk


I've merged the new-admin branch into trunk. Essentially this adds the
following functionality:http://code.djangoproject.com/wiki/NewAdminChangesThis is backwards-compatible.

The changes will be documented further, but I wanted to send out the
announcement first.

Special thanks, of course, to Robert Wittams for his hard work on new-admin.

Excellent work.

Just wanted to say a big thanks to Adrian, Hugo, Jakob, Robert, Simon,
Wilson and co. for all the awesome contributions you guys are putting
in to Django. When do you sleep?

Adrian in particular I would like to thank for your "agile"
documentation. I think that documentation is going to be one of
Django's key selling points and it's value cannot be overrated. With
developer tools evolving so rapidly it doesn't cut it to expect
developers to "read the code" because time spent reading code to work
out how things are supposed to be done is time not spent on actually
getting things done. You obviously get this but I just thought that it
was worth acknowledging it and drawing attention to the fact that the
documentation is actually one of Django's key features, and should be
promoted as such.

While on the topic of the docs: some people have mentioned that the
wiki is not obvious enough on dangoproject.com and I agree. There is
some useful information in the wiki but it's not going to get noticed
at the moment. It's also not going to encourage contributions.

While you keep up the good work I seem to spend much of my spare
moments just trying to keep up with the good work :)

Ok, so the wiki at djangoproject.com is far more obvious at least than
the wiki at dangoproject.com.

I think this point needs re-iterating. The documentation in Django is
very, very helpful. I talk as someone who got involved in Zope some 7+
years ago in the v1.0.3 days when the documentation was appalling, and
doing anything was a major breakthrough. There's a lot more Zope
documentation available now of course, and at many differing levels,
but the Django docs certainly hit a 'sweet spot' with me.

I've learnt a lot from the documentation, and feel it won't be long
before I'm comfortable describing Django to my team.

Mind you, you still have to read the documentation! - see my post in
the Atom thread ;)

So a big +1 to everyone involved in creating the documentation - it's
very much appreciated.
