Agreed.  I'd rather those were elsewhere as well, but I was paying
less attention at the time.

Perhaps someone here knows enough about our documentation toolchain to
figure out a way to generate a link from the docs to developer docs on
the website.  :-)

I expect only a very small part of the audience for the general Python
documentation & CPython docs are particularly interested in the
development process we use, and sending them to the website from a
convenient link is not a bad thing.  We won't even need a new
repository to do that.
