To be clear on this issue's scope, I would state in a single comment a white list of which directories or individual files are being corrected (or if necessary, the rules to determine such a list, e.g. any file whose name root is "NEWS", etc).

I would also recommend being systematic about this by creating a script to search the above files, along with a configuration section containing the list of replacements: e.g. correct spelling -> list of misspellings for that name.  And upload the script to this issue.  That way people can see what misspellings have already been accounted for, more could be added easily, and it could be used again if necessary.

Because this may grow in scope (e.g. into source files) and because it affects people's names, it may be worth raising on python-dev.  At the least, people would have the chance to contribute known misspellings.
