New submission from cardinalbiggles firstname.lastname@example.org:
In the threading module, the documentation for Thread.isDaemon()/Thread.setDaemon() indicates they are the old API for Thread.daemon, which does not indicate the version in which it was introduced (2.6 I believe).
Additionally, the documentation for Thread.setDaemon() should at least include the daemonic parameter, if not the full usage documentation for those targeting older versions.
Targeting Python 2.4, and being unable to (as) efficiently navigate the old documentation site, I have come to rely on the various 'Changed/New in version 2.X' messages in the current documentation. This caused some confusion on my part.
