Éric Araujo <merwok at netwok.org> added the comment:
Be careful with whitespace changes. Sometimes not putting whitespace around an operator helps to see the grouping of operations, for example. The important thing is “Readability counts”, not “Always put whitespace around operators”. A huge part of understanding PEP 8 is to know when not to follow PEP 8 (PEP 20 is not called a Zen for no reason :)
About 5)-6): I really wish the docs wouldn’t use the term “variable”, which means something else in most other programming languages and always cause beginners to stumble upon unexpected-for-them binding behavior.
A remark that’s probably culture-dependent: “degenerate” nearly sounds like a racist insult to me (see 11).
