That would be awesome!

The most useful way for us is if you can generate diffs of the
documentation source files. They are in the Doc directory of the
source code repository, you can find references on how to get at:
http://docs.python.org/devguide/ and more on documentation on
http://docs.python.org/devguide/documenting.html - If you want more
details, don't hesitate to ask.

Please also note that documentation is updated on all the active
branches, that are: 2.7, 3.2 and deafult - it would be nice if you
could make (at least for the biggest patches) a version for all those
