Hi Boštjan, thanks for the reports and suggestions.

A tip about versions.  This field is used to mark the versions in which the bug will be fixed, not all versions where the bug is found.  2.5 and 2.6 only get security fixes; 2.7 and 3.1, the current stable versions, also get bug (including doc) fixes; 3.2, the next stable version, also gets new features; 3.3 is used to mean “won’t happen in 3.2, remind us later”; 3rd party means, well, third-party, for example distutils2 which is managed outside of the standard library and thus does not affect the status of Python releases.

Finally, you can send email to docs at python.org for such small typos instead of opening bug reports, as you please.

(Another tip: “please fix” messages don’t really add to the discussion and don’t make the developers have more time.  Don’t worry, someone will get to your reports in time.)
