Re: Turn off migrations completely in Django 1.7


Well I agree top-posting is usually a problem - especially for those who
hate it. But in this case the top-poster was semi-hijacking the thread
and in doing so felt the need to top post to differentiate the subject
matter. That difference was in "disabling migrations" versus turning off
migrations completely and preventing the creation of the migrations
table - the latter not something the top poster seemed to worry about.
Also, there is the line "even if all of the other models are set to
managed=False" which implies another difference possibly justifying a
thread semi-hijack. Anyway, I suspect disabling migration - even if a
"master-switch" could be built - is undesirable if one is using any of
the django tables.

Please forgive me for hijacking this thread to discuss top-posting.
