A Word About This Django Fork
This is an unofficial fork of Django, which focuses entirely on backporting
official, publicly-announced security fixes to Django 1.6.11. It does not
contain any other bug fixes or features, and any branches other than
security-backports/1.6.x are unlikely to be up-to-date.
Django 1.6.x is the last release cycle of Django to support Python 2.6, but both Django 1.6.x and Python 2.6.x are no longer officially supported by either project, and will no longer be receiving any official security fixes.
We recognize that many organizations and products are still tied to these releases, which is why we've built this fork. However, we strongly recommend that you use modern, official versions of both Django and Python, if at all possible.
We're not guaranteeing long-term support on this codebase. We're maintaining this for Review Board customers so long as we support the versions currently using Django 1.6.x.
We're also not actively looking for new security vulnerabilities. If you find a new vulnerability in this release, check to be sure it does not apply to any other versions currently supported by the Django project.
All security backport releases will be posted to our downloads page. They are not available via PyPI.
You can verify builds against our PGP key (285291B34ED1F993).

(The following is the official information about Django itself. Please remember not to bother them about anything related to this fork.)
Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design. Thanks for checking it out.
All documentation is in the "docs" directory and online at http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/. If you're just getting started, here's how we recommend you read the docs:
- First, read docs/intro/install.txt for instructions on installing Django.
- Next, work through the tutorials in order (docs/intro/tutorial01.txt, docs/intro/tutorial02.txt, etc.).
- If you want to set up an actual deployment server, read docs/howto/deployment/index.txt for instructions.
- You'll probably want to read through the topical guides (in docs/topics) next; from there you can jump to the HOWTOs (in docs/howto) for specific problems, and check out the reference (docs/ref) for gory details.
- See docs/README for instructions on building an HTML version of the docs.
Docs are updated rigorously. If you find any problems in the docs, or think they should be clarified in any way, please take 30 seconds to fill out a ticket here:
