Two things to be considered:

- Django-1.6 will get out of maintenance when F21 is still released
(probably in March 2015)

- when running an app, the following lines in your wsgi file need to be
placed or replaced:

from django.core.wsgi import get_wsgi_application
application = get_wsgi_application()

instead of whatever was there earlier to define the application.
