There's

    http://python.sourceforge.net/devel-docs/about.html

but that's not too helpful, and

    http://python.sourceforge.net/devel-docs/doc/doc.html

which is probably a bit overwhelming.

Do you speak TeX at all?  The Python docs are in LaTeX, and are part of
the source documentation or CVS.

If you can do TeX, then great; send patches as described in 

    http://www.python.org/patches/

If you can't, but can find the relavent sections of the docs and can 
supply words, then you can still submit a patch with little or no markup 
-- I think Fred's got quite good at adding markup to verbiage by now :)

Goody.
