Marius Gedminas added the comment:

A working link is http://docs.python.org/2/library/xml.etree.elementtree.html or http://docs.python.org/2/library/xml.etree.elementtree (with no .html at the end).

Looks like capitalization is causing a problem.

Did these pydoc links ever work?

Would it be possible to make them work?

There's a limited number of standard library modules with names that contain capital letters.  find /usr/lib/python2.7 -name dist-packages -prune -o -name '*[A-Z]*' | wc -l gives me 211 names, but this is an imprecise upper bound because it includes files like 'distutils/README' that aren't modules or packages.

Can I do anything to help?
