I once mistyped the app name and felt dumb for wasting time looking for a typo.
BTW, what's with django.db.models.get_model() silently failing?

Hmmm. Not sure about this one.

BTW, what's with django.db.models.get_model() silently failing?

That seems to be exactly the point. Isn't this much better fixed in Django rather than worked around in DRF?

@tomchristie, @xordoquy, anyone else — thoughts?

I need to think a bit about this and what's Django behavior to keep things consistent with it.

We've made the decision to close of all currently open serializer tickets, pending the 3.0 release.

The 3.0 release will involve a major redesign and improvement of the current serializer implementation and should invalidate the large majority of these outstanding tickets.

We will be reviewing the closed tickets prior to the 3.0 launch and try to ensure that we have fully covered any long-standing issues, and adequately dealt with the outstanding problems.

If your issue does not appear to be addressed by the upcoming 3.0 release please do comment on your ticket with the current status, and we can reopen any valid tickets as required. In particular, if your ticket represents a long-standing or fundamental problem please do make sure to follow the mailing list and review any 3.0 pre-release candidates where possible.

Note that you can review the closed tickets with the following searches:

Serializer tickets:
Writable nested serializer tickets:

Many thanks for your understanding and here's looking forward to a new and improved version, and a cleaner more actionable issue list.

All the best,
