Django-1.7 for Fedora 21


in Fedora 21, we have Django-1.6. Django-1.7 was released a few weeks
ago. As we're in feature freeze, but still pre-beta. I'd like to ask for
opinions, if an upgrade to Django-1.7 would be still acceptable.

I have a copr available containing Django-1.7 [1]

Latest & greatest, please.

Especially since django 1.7 brought south (migrations) to core.

Also, in a couple of months, I believe that a lot of folks would love to use 1.7, so let's make their life easier (by NOT doing 'pip install').

Does it bring any substantial benefits? Does it break existing apps?

- Django-1.6 will get out of maintenance when F21 is still released
(probably in March 2015)

- when running an app, the following lines in your wsgi file need to be
placed or replaced:

from django.core.wsgi import get_wsgi_application
application = get_wsgi_application()

instead of whatever was there earlier to define the application.

There are no Django applications that are part of the install sets of
any of the Products or Spins so far as I am aware, so the risk to the
Project deliverable dates would be minimal. I'd suggest bringing it to
FESCo for a more complete risk-analysis, but I'd argue that we'd be
better off shipping python-django as 1.7 and also the python-django16
package in Fedora 21.

Shipping F21 with Django 1.6 as the default will *definitely* have us
kicking ourselves in 6 months. And shipping 1.7 by default will make
lots of Django users/devs happy.

Definitely bring it up to FESCo, but it's probably riskier to be
shipping something that will become unsupported within the release
lifetime than to upgrade to the newer version.
