Terry J. Reedy <tjreedy at udel.edu> added the comment:

I also think that in "In order to avoid infinite recursion in this method, its implementation should always call the base class method with the same name to access any attributes it needs, for example, object.__getattribute__(self, name).", 'the base class' should be 'a base class' or 'a superclass' since there might be more than one base/super class. Ditto for __setattr__.
