We used to ship a version of ibm_db_django that worked with the ibm_db_dbi
on IBM i, but it was only supported to Django 1.8. You could try using
upstream ibm_db_django (which is what we based django-ibmi off of), but I
don't know how well it works with Db2 for i in its current state. It has
rudimentary ODBC support, but it's primarily designed to work with ibm_db,
which would require a Db2 Connect license to run from Linux.

I think the problem lies in whether or not Django's ORM has support for
DB2
for i. Django abstracts the DB using that ORM to simplify the
programmers'
life.
