As someone who does both Web design and Python regularly, I'd love to contribute to reworking/changing the Python docs theme.

They are not terrible currently, there are certainly areas for improvement, both in overall layout and text styling. Bringing it closer to other Python branding may also be desirable.

For me, the quality of a project's website is a major factor in whether or not I use it. If it looks old or badly styled, it is an indicator that there may not much be active development in the project. I apply this less to languages, as they are generally spoken about enough that one can use their reputation, but I can well imagine someone turning away from a language because the docs felt old or badly styled.

This means that they will not make, what are to me, obvious inferences. Their universe of cause and effect will be quite unexpected. They will be surprised by and misunderstand, what are to me, rather obvious things.

I know this should have been obvious to the meanest intelligence. But I just realized it. The two preceding sentences are not in conflict.

They must be rather frustrated and confused.>>

@Rob Cliffe I was saying that if you don't know the flashy
terms it's an indication that you come from
a great time. Me myself i find myself no longer
wanting to go deep into networking or the Linux kernel 
maybe because i no longer find myself near 
the v0 or v1 of things. Why i find a reason to 
dig deep is because of curiosity and to really
become good at something. It's not a granted
thing that if you are into computer science you'll
automatically be exposed to the core level.
When you see some new people in the field,
sometimes it makes you wonder why they no
longer take the care to know of fundamental things not taught.

The SaaS term comes not from the circle of
