Good catch. (In the future, try to include the url, as below.)

The full sentence in question, at https://docs.python.org/3/c-api/list.html#c.PyList_GetItem, is "The position must be positive, indexing from the end of the list is not supported."  'positive' should be 'non-negative'.  The next sentence deal with out-of-bounds positions, and these could be specified as '(< 0, > len(list))'
