Well, that's nice to know now. However, I distinctly remember being told
that any changes made to the docstrings directly in the source would end up
getting replaced by whatever was in the doc edit system whenever a merge
from it happens. Therefore, if one wanted their edits to be persistent,
they had to submit it through the doc edit system.

Note, much of my animosity towards the doc edit system was due to issues
with the scipy.org being so sluggish back then, and the length of time it
took for any edits to finally make it down to the docstrings. Now that
scipy.org is much more responsive, and that numpy and scipy has moved on to
git, perhaps those two issues are gone now?

Sorry for hijacking the thread, this is just the first I am hearing that
one can submit documentation edits via PRs and was surprised.
