Commit 0af4a1f broke compatibility with older versions of django.
now seeing that django-robots only supports django>=1.3. What else in the django-robots app is not backward compatible with django 1.2 (which is my immediate need)?
Not sure what else is broken, but given the fact that 1.2 and 1.3 are not maintained anymore this app had to move on. If you need support for 1.2 you can always use and older version of the robots app, but I can't support it anymore. Apologies for the inconvenience.
