New submission from Fred L. Drake, Jr.:

The docstring for the smtplib.SMTP class includes descriptions of some
instance attributes that are not covered by the documentation:


If these are intended as part of the public interface, they should be
documented in the .tex/.rst documentation, otherwise their descriptions
should be in a comment instead of a docstring.  (helo_resp is mentioned
in Misc/HISTORY, if that actually means anything.)
