[New-bugs-announce] [issue1536] pickle's documentation is severely outdated

Alexandre Vassalotti report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Alexandre Vassalotti:

The current documentation for the pickle module (and related modules) is
outdated and should be updated. For example, the section "Pickling and
unpickling extension types" [1] is not only confusing, but outright
wrong. For Python 2.6, the documentation of cPickle should be updated to
reflect the differences between the cPickle and pickle.py modules. It
would be also be appropriate to note that cPickle is pending removal and
should not be used anymore.
