Bug Description

The GenericIPAddress field from 1.4 is required in 1.3 as a pre-requisite to a maas backport. This field stores any IP address, v4 or v6.

This is functionality required as part of the MAAS Next Steps blueprint [1], in order to be able to SRU various new fixes to MAAS in precise. This functionality adds a new field that is required for MAAS, in order to be able to store IPv4 and IPv6.

[Test Case]
This has been tested against MAAS. To test this we simply need to branch the MAAS branch which is being prepared for the SRU, and make sure all tests pass. Tests will fail when this SRU has not being installed. Test will pass when this feature is backported.

1. bzr branch lp:~maas-maintainers/maas/1.2 maas-sru
2. cd maas-sru
3. make test

[Regression Potential]
Minimal. This is functionality that produces minimal impact to django. On the other hand, the maas-maintainers team has committed to address any related issues and maintain it from this point forward.

I've just removed this update from precise-updates. Unfortunately it wasn't until after I copied it over that I noticed that this is not an appropriate change for an SRU and it's not been reviewed by the SRU team.

Since this was not reviewed by the SRU team, I've removed the SRU. Additionally, since feature additions are not permitted in SRUs by the normal policy, a change like this should be discussed in advance, probably with the tech board, before it is resubmitted.

"Adds a new field that is required for MAAS, in order to be able to store IPv4 and IPv6." is not an SRU worthy fix. The fact that someone at Canonical wants it done doesn't change that. Please do not move this from invalid again without discussion.

python-django is widely used for more than MAAS. "Works with MAAS" is nowhere near sufficient validation that messing with a feature backport post-release is safe for Ubuntu users.
