This is extremely impressive.  Thank you for this work!

If all the documentation is generated from a base format that is
closer to text (reST instead of LaTeX), that will make it easier
for volunteers to read diffs, make edits, and contribute patches.

I agree that interactivity (online commenting and editing) will
be a huge advantage.

I could imagine this heading in a Wiki-like direction -- where a
particular version is tagged as the official revision shipped
with a particular Python release, but everyone can make edits
online to yield new versions, eventually yielding the revision
that will be released with the next Python release.
