New submission from Ilya Novoselov email@example.com:
Documentation states that u format unit returns "buffer of 16-bit Unicode (UTF-16) data" while it returns pointer to internal buffer of unicode data, which is either UCS-16 or UCS-32

Martin Panter added the comment:
The Python 3 documentation was updated in Issue 8593 (revision 5d4a5655575f). Perhaps some of the wording also applies to Python 2 and you can just copy it.

This is has taken years but am curious, are we allowed to patch Python 2 given its EOL is almost due.

I don't think that it's still worth it to update Python 2 documentation at this point. I suggest to focus on enhancement of the Python 3 documentation instead.
