+1 from me as I do not have to pass the RequestContext all the time, specially handy for newbie. I spent some time debugging why the authentication is not persistent across the requests just to find out I forgot add RequestContext.

with previous comment I stil lhave to use:

return direct_to_template(request, 'template' , {'context_instance':RequestContext(request), 'form':form})

fix to my previous comment, I didn't catch that the RequestContext is in the return statement of direct_to_template. So indeed it looks like this snippet is already in django in some way ;)

-1 whiteinge has it right, this function adds nothing but confusion to future code, especially since it is so close to the render_to_response function name and is barely less verbose than render_to_response('template', {}, RequestContext(request)).

Use either direct_to_template() or render_to_response('template', {}, RequestContext(request)).
