[New-bugs-announce] [issue17057] Data model documentation grammar

Hobs report at bugs.python.org
Mon Jan 28 01:24:17 CET 2013

New submission from Hobs:

New-style and old-style class expalanation in the datamodel section has minor grammatical errors and one minor ambiguity that could be improved.


* "independently of" should always be "indepenent of"
* single hyphens (-) should be double-hyphens (--) for an m-dash
* "flavour" should be "flavor" (used 100x more often in docs.python)
* "only the symantics of..." is ambiguous. can't tell if 'only' modifies 'symantics' or 'new-style classes'?
