Help with data migrations
|Reported by:||anonymous||Owned by:||andrew|
Hi, I couldn't find the link to any mailing list, so I'm asking the question here:
Is there any API to do data migrations? I can't use Django models because the model may refer to a new version of the database in case I migrate down or drop tables and want to remigrate, or I want to setup on a new system.
Do I have to use raw SQL to do this? I was hoping not, because it defeats the idea of database independence. Is there any abstraction that South provides for moving data around during a migration?
