New submission from Nick Coghlan <ncoghlan at gmail.com>:

Reviewing the What's New docs, this seemed like the easiest way to give Raymond a list of things I noticed:

- first sentence in the "ast" module section needs rewording (currently includes fragments from a couple of different phrasings)

- in the "dis" module section, dis.dis has also acquired the ability to disassemble source string directly, avoiding the need to compile them manually first (see issue 6507).

- in the "dbm" module section, there is another case of a sentence containing fragments from two different phrasings

- the new "handler of last resort" functionality in the logging module deserves a mention (see issue 10626 and the explanation at http://docs.python.org/dev/howto/logging.html#what-happens-if-no-configuration-is-provided)

- Vinay's rewrite of the logging module docs to be significantly more approachable (by splitting them into the raw logging API docs and the "read-as-much-as-you-need-to" logging HOWTO) is also a notable and welcome change.
