== Summary ==
Update Django to version 4.0.

== Detailed Description ==
The Django project has regular releases about every 9 months. Django
4.0 is a major milestone, and this Change will
bring the Fedora included version to the latest version.
The immediate step is to bump the python-django package to version
4.0. It is expected, that dependent packages will be
updated as well, or retired, if they haven't seen an update for long time.
== Benefit to Fedora ==
This updates to the latest Django version and allows to use the
distribution provided version to be used both in new developments and
also with latest Django applications.
The upstream project has more info on what's new
The risk of not completing this change is that the next update will be
more disruptive, Django 4.1 is planned for about the same time as
Fedora 37 will land.
== Scope ==
* Proposal owners: python-django will be updated to version 4.0.
* Other developers:
Other developers or maintainers will have to test their packages with
* Release engineering:
* Policies and guidelines: N/A (not needed for this Change)
* Trademark approval: N/A (not needed for this Change)
== Upgrade/compatibility impact ==
== How To Test ==
The python3-django package has to be installed in order to run the test.
== Dependencies ==
Django (the fedora package name is python-django) has a few dependent
packages which should get updated (or removed) as noted above. If they
were not updated for Django 4.0, that probably means that their
upstream is not very active anymore.
Which ones? I think you need to figure out what those dependent
packages are and list them in this change.
== Contingency Plan ==
* Contingency mechanism: (What to do? Who will do it?) N/A (not a
System Wide Change)
* Contingency deadline: N/A (not a System Wide Change)
* Blocks release? N/A (not a System Wide Change)
