New submission from Manuel Kaufmann:

The `venv` module has a bug in the command to activate it on Windows.

In 3.3 and 3.4 the bar used is wrong: `/` instead `\`

* https://docs.python.org/3.4/library/venv.html#creating-virtual-environments
* https://docs.python.org/3.3/library/venv.html#creating-virtual-environments

In 3.5 and 3.6 that section was converted to a table with the commands and they are missing the `\` in the command path:

* https://docs.python.org/dev/library/venv.html#creating-virtual-environments
