Hey Dieter,

All is good, though always busy. You?

I understand this problem well, it bugged me when I was writing that
page too.
I've found at least 2 possibilities:
  * Rewrite the form layout by (for example) looping over all the fields
    in the template, instead of using form.as_p().
  * Use the label property instead of the help_text property.

I haven't found a way to just specify where the help_text should be. The
first option seems like a lot more work than should be necessary and
possibly more likely to require change in the future. On the other hand
I also think that the 2nd option is less than ideal because even though
the text does seem like a good label for me, it's also inconsistent to
only have an explanation (and no normal label) for certain fields, and
adding the field's label manually would require you to change this
property as well, although you probably need to do that anyway since
you'll have changed the name and need to change it in the form as well.

As you may notice, I'm not very good at making decisions...

I would go for the label option anyway because that (sorry if this
sounds very wrong) seems like less work now and possibly also in the

If I could be pointed to or given an explanation how to create / send a
patch the way you want them I'll happily do this, although it seems such
a minor change that anyone could do it in a few seconds.

This sounds like something that should be done in the admin console, or
is this a request to also change this in the fixtures? If so I'd happily
do this as well of course.
