Documentation Development

Documentation submissions are welcome in plain text from contributors without LaTeX knowledge. Python documentation is developed in much the same way as the interpreter itself. It is a community effort, and bugs and patches should be submitted through the Python trackers at SourceForge.

Python committers: if you handle a submission that contains documentation in plain text or ReST, feel free to assign it to one of the following people for LaTeXification:

Development versions of the Python documentation are available on-line:

Contributors and potential contributors wishing to modify the documentation source themselves should read Documenting Python, which details the conventions and markup used in creating and maintaining the Python documentation. The SVN trunk version is the recommended version for contributors, regardless of which Python branch is being modified.
