Very nice!

I'm not sure what to do about the discoverability of the comment
bubbles as the end of each paragraph. I initially thought commenting
wasn't available on What's New or the Using Python docs until seeing
where the blue comment bubbles appeared in the math module docs.

A discreet notice at the bottom of the sidebar and/or an explanation
at the "Report a Bug" page may cover it I guess.

I gave the JS a fair few comments on the first paragraph to digest. I
also put my detailed UI comments there as well (I needed something to
write about while testing, so I figured I may as well make it useful
to you!)

Tracker sounds like the best bet to me.

My comments may on the math module may give you a chance to see how
easy it is to get text out of comments into a form suitable for
sending to a mailing list or posting to a tracker issue for further
discussion :)
