The docs look correct to me:
>>> class A:
User defined classes are in-fact hashable by default. Other methods can be defined to change hashability, but they are not the default.
FWIW, it isn't the purpose of the glossary to be a language spec; rather, it is to provide a rough meaning of what the word "hashable" means. Already, the wording has exceeded its original intent. The correct place for a more detailed specification in the language reference for object.__hash__():
Thank you for the suggestion, but we'll pass on this one.
