As I understand it,
that old links, blog posts..... that exist in the world and originally
referenced python 2 will still work as they pointed to
(no version number)
* Is this correct?
At some point http://docs.python.org/library<https://docs.python.org/3/library/builtins.html>
I would consider adding release numbers, i.e
All this makes me think it would be cool to have a DIFF button on document
pages that would show a diff between version number. i.e. when I read a
blog post about X and I follow the link in the post to doc version a.b I
can see a quick diff to see how it (docs) compare to version c.d I am using.
I think http://docs.python.org<https://docs.python.org/3/library/builtins.html>
be a landing page not forwarded to current version docs. Maybe something
like http://www.python.org/doc/versions/ although I think that should be
