we need the same, to be precise, we need two things, to allow editing
of data stored in Django/PostGIS in QGIS over the network and let QGIS
Server (WMS) to read data from Django, both using Django filters etc.
If we manage to get data to QGIS from Django (and back), we can use
QGIS Server and WFS-T for editing. So I am looking for something like
Django provider for QGIS or WFS-T application for Django. Are you
aware of something like that?

Olivier, what have you used in the end? [1] is not maintained and it
does not support WFS-T.

Alessandro, in [2] I am missing data reading from Django models. It
seems like the server is launched from python, but data flow goes
through standard QGIS providers?

Marco, if I got it looking briefly into GeoNode code, they just run
QGIS server, but they don't read data directly from Django models,
