I just wanted to download the Python 3.4 1rc1 Documentation, but the
links all lead to 404 Not Found :(
It would be nice if you could fix that.

I'm new to Python and was reading code that used this:
and I didn't know what it meant. I looked in the python.org docs for "@"
and "@property" and didn't get any results, so I turned to Google and found
a good page on stackoverflow about how "@property" worked (
However, I still did not understand "@". I eventually asked a colleague (I
try to RTFM before asking), and he said "oh ya, that's a decorator." Once I
knew that "@" = "decorator," I could search for "decorator" in the docs and
get useful results. In fact, I found a LOT of great results; this isn't a
request for more information on decorators :).
I probably spent 15-20 minutes before learning @ = decorator, and I'm sure
this is something that plagues other newbies. Can the docs (or search
functionality) be updated so someone searching on "@" as a single search
term will get information on decorators? Search results could include a
direction to the decorator entry in the glossary?, the function/class
definition pages, etc.
New submission from Brad Aylsworth:
The documentation page for codecs (https://docs.python.org/2/library/codecs.html) shows keyword arguments for codecs.encode and codecs.decode, but they throw an error if keyword arguments are used. codecs.decode.__doc__ reports 'decode(obj, [encoding[,errors]]) -> object.
This happens on both 2.7.6 and 3.4.0.

Not sure if this is a bug or just a weirdness with google. When I do a
google search such as "python subprocess", the first result that comes
back looks like the following:
Showing results for python subprocess
17.1. /subprocess/ - /Python/ 3.4.0 documentation
The /subprocess/ module allows you to spawn new processes, connect to
their input/output/error pipes, and obtain their return codes. This
module intends to ...
Notice the header says 3.4.0 but the link goes to python.org/2, and in
fact when you click you are looking at the 2.x version docs.
I noticed this crop up about a week ago, I see it on lots of searches.
I don't see any reference to 3.4.0 in the source for that file, so I'm
not sure how it could be a python.org issue, but I'm not a search engine
was just wondering whether it's possible to have one of my articles to
be added to the official Python Wiki?
it's been getting a lot of positive feedback lately, and looks like it's
helping a lot of beginners to get started. I hand curated that list a
couple of weeks ago, would definitely be cool to see it as a reference
for newcomers who begin their journey through the Wiki.
