New submission from Robert Weiner:
Shouldn't async and await be added to the pydoc keywords list?

Thank you for your report. Prior to Python 3.7, async and await keywords have had special meanings and they weren't treated as normal keywords. They are now in Python 3.7:
async = 42
File "<stdin>", line 1 async = 42 ^ SyntaxError: invalid syntax
And they are listed as keywords:
$ ./python -m pydoc keywords
Here is a list of the Python keywords. Enter any keyword to get more help.
False class from or None continue global pass True def if raise and del import return as elif in try assert else is while async except lambda with await finally nonlocal yield break for not
So I don't think we should modify pydoc to list them as keywords in Python 3.6.
