New submission from anatoly techtonik:

To help people understand that they can actually improve Python docs themselves, how about the following changes:

http://docs.python.org/3/bugs.html - rename from "Reporting Bugs" to "Dealing with Bugs".

Explain that sometimes fixing bug is easier than reporting, because it involves less time from all people in total. Link to step-by-step documentation for the process and include channel for proposals how to make the process more streamlined.

Add links to archive and docs at python.org mailing list info

On this info page make it clear that "Python documentation team" is not a team in common narrow sense, but a group of volunteers open for everybody. Either by providing a link to team page with listed members, or by replacing the text:
- "Mailing list for the Python documentation team"
+ "Mailing list for people collaborating on Python docs"
