    • Filtering by start character was suggested. There might be shortcomings with large user databases.
    • H20 will prototype and provide feedback / screenshots.
    • Django’s admin stuff might have some clever things H20 could copy.

Post Meeting:

  • If you get ‘Storage module “” does not define a “PipelineCachedStorage” class.’ django_pipeline needs to be upgraded
    • run ‘python develop’ to fix this (or just upgrade django_pipeline).
