As I remember, the FAQ was once that, *the* (giant) FAQ, with numbered sections. When broken into pieces, the order may have been re-arranged.

Given that the broken reference is in extending/windows, I would look in both the Extending and Windows FAQs. However, I found neither 'PyType_Type' nor 'PyVarObject_HEAD_INIT' nor 'initialization' in either.

Besides removing the dead reference, you could either look through the revision history of the file or ask on pydev if you need the info.

The split-up FAQs first appear in a release doc set in Python 2.6.4, documentation released on 25 October 2009. I do not know if the earlier, unitary FAQ is in the repository or not.
