I mean that if I go to google.com and type in something related to
Python documentation, none of the results are from python.org.  They
are all from mirrors of python.org + docs.python.org and from places
like pydoc.org.  In the good old days, I could do a simple search for
Python documentation -- just enter the words I was looking for,
perhaps with python as an added term -- and the www.python.org results
would be in the top 5.

I think that's bad for Python users, because most of the people who do
those queries would be best served going to python.org.
