Re: tutorial part 4: ImportError

Hi group,

I've noticed a few things in the tutorial documentation for 1.2 on page under the section "Use generic views: Less code is better":

1.  It instructs the user to rename both the detail.html and list.html pages to poll_*.html, but it doesn't say to rename the results.html file to poll_results.html, which in turn in polls/, the template_name='polls/results.html' seems to need to be changed to template_name='polls/poll_results.html' to be properly used by the generic views. 

2. Also, in polls/, in the vote model, poll_id needs to be changed to object_id in the signature, although the instructions only say to change these references in the templates and in the render_to_response call (it may have been implied to change the vote model signature when the author says that 'The object_detail() generic view expects the ID value captured from the URL to be called "object_id", so we've changed poll_id to object_id for the generic views.', - if this is the case then ignore this one :) 

3. Also in polls/ in the import line "from django.conf.urls.defaults import *" seems to be an unused import

Can someone check to make sure that I am correct on this list?  Maybe I am off-base on some of this.  Thank you!
