[Python-modules-team] Bug#781033: python-django: "manage dbshell" fails to transmit settings password to postgresql

Package: python-django
Version: 1.7.6-1
Severity: minor


When one runs the generated ./manage.py with "runserver" argument,
django find the host, dbname, username, and password and runs ok.

But when one runs it with "dbshell" argument, django only uses host,
dbname and username. Then a prompt asks the user for the password.

I expected django to use the password from settings, as it does for
other commands.

I'm using postgresql.

$ grep HOST settings.py
'HOST': '', # Empty for localhost through domain sockets or
'' for localhost through TCP.
