[New-bugs-announce] [issue1421] python.org: outdated and false information

New submission from Christian Heimes:

Short of a bug tracker for errors on python.org I'm using this bug
tracker to support some problems.

"Documenting Python" still mentions LaTeX as the system for
documentation of Python.

"Python for .NET" is either describing a totally different project or
the author  of the chapter didn't understand the design goals of Python
for .NET written by Brian Lloyd. It's a bridge between CPython and
.NET/Mono that allows developers to use CPython code and C extensions in
.NET or .NET assemblies in CPython. Compiling Python code to CLR / IL
byte code is not the intention of the project.
The project homepage is wrong (http://pythonnet.sourceforge.net/) and
the project is still maintained. I myself has fixed several bugs this
summer and ported it to Python 2.5, Python 2.6, UCS-4 builds of Python
and Mono.
