What do you want to try with Python 2.5?

If you want to build the Python 2.6/3.0 docs, it's easiest to check the
Python sources out from http://svn.python.org/projects/python/trunk, go to
the Doc directory and do "make html". This will checkout sphinx and all
other needed libraries into Doc/tools and build the docs.


Thus spake the Lord: Thou shalt indent with four spaces. No more, no less.
Four shall be the number of spaces thou shalt indent, and the number of thy
indenting shall be four. Eight shalt thou not indent, nor either indent thou
two, excepting that thou then proceed to four. Tabs are right out.
