Part of the problem is that the people who maintain the official 
python.org documentation for this information feel that Mailman should 
not be referencing their documentation, instead we should have our own 
internal version of the same information.

So, they don't give a flying flip about what happens to the Mailman 
community when they change their documentation or their URLs.

Since the release engineer for the next major version of Python is going 
to be mentored by Barry Warsaw for that role, perhaps we can get some 
sympathy there and hopefully get a bit more cooperation on things like this.
