I created a new ticket with the need to disable pagination in the admin
object listing altogether. The current default value for pagination is 100
objects per page, which can of course be extended to sys.maxint and is
surely enough but this leaves an odd feeling. In the ticket I put up
different proposals how to solve that:
- list_per_page could accept 0 or None as "do not paginate"
- same as above, but rename this setting - list_per_page = 0 seems
- create a setting like disable_pagination
As far as I see, the oldform-admin is now finishing it's life, so there
isn't probably much sense in patching that. A patch (which I volunteer to
write) would need to go against newforms-admin, maybe even before the
merge to trunk, so backwards incompatible changes would hit with one merge.
The ticket: http://code.djangoproject.com/ticket/4027
So, what do you think about this? I'll be happy to hear your ideas.
P.S.: I'll try to write a patch for #4027, so expect many questions ;)
