A very succint course, though it would have been nice to understand more on the code
path('accounts/', include('django.contrib.auth.urls')),and what is happening here. I came across an error when I added a namespace to my users’ url.py file and was not able to figure it out until I went to the Django repo and have a deeper look at what the paths are doing and why they request certain templates.
