R. David Murray added the comment:

I agree with Tapani; what you just explained should be made explicit ("the type is skipped" isn't the same as "searching starts from the item after the type in the object's MRO").  Also, the docs imply by the phrasing that the getattr docs will explain the method resolution order, but those docs do not in fact address the topic.  Perhaps there should be a link to 'method resolution order' in the glossary?
