+Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid
+development and clean, pragmatic design.
 
-This is the Django 0.91 "bugfixes" branch, which is intended to provide
-bugfix and patch support for users of Django version 0.91, which was
-the last version before a series of major API changes. No new features
-will be added in this branch, and it is maintained solely as a means
-of providing support to legacy Django installations. If you're just
-starting out with Django, we highly recommend that you use the latest
-stable release or a Subversion checkout from Django's trunk.
 
-All documentation is in the "docs" directory and online at
-http://www.djangoproject.com/documentation/0_91/.  If you're just getting started,
-here's how we recommend you read the docs:
+About this version
+==================
 
-    * First, read docs/install.txt for instructions on installing Django.
+This is the Django 0.90 "bugfixes" branch, which is intended to
+provide bugfix and patch support for users of Django 0.90 who have not
+been able to migrate to a more recent version. No new features will be
+added in this branch, and it is maintained solely as a means of
+providing support to legacy Django installations.
 
-    * Next, work through the tutorials in order (docs/tutorial01.txt,
-      docs/tutorial02.txt, etc.).
+If you're completely new to Django we highly recommend that you use
+either the latest stable release or a Subversion checkout from
+Django's trunk; Django is always evolving, and the latest and greatest
+features are only available to users of newer versions of the
+framework.
 
-    * If you want to set up an actual deployment server, read docs/modpython.txt
-      for instructions on running Django under mod_python.
 
-    * The rest of the documentation is of the reference-manual variety.
-      Read it -- and the FAQ -- as you run into problems.
+More information
+================
 
-Docs are updated rigorously. If you find any problems in the docs, or think they
-should be clarified in any way, please take 30 seconds to fill out a ticket
-here:
+The complete history of bugs fixed in this branch can be viewed online

+We also recommend that users of this branch subscribe to the
+"django-announce" mailing list, a low-traffic, announcements-only list
+which will send messages whenever an important (i.e.,
+security-related) bug is fixed. You can subscribe to the list via
