[New-bugs-announce] [issue11135] Redundant doc field in TypeSpec

New submission from Martin v. Löwis <martin at v.loewis.de>:

There are currently two ways to specify a type doc string in PyType_FromSpec; either through the doc field (which is not actually processed), or through Py_tp_doc (which works correctly).

The original concern for adding doc into the TypeSpec was that the slots may only refer to function pointers; as it turns out, putting character pointers in there works fine as well, so I recommend to drop the doc field in TypeSlot.

The patch also fixes some labelling in the xxlimited module.
