Hmm.  You can browse it online at

    http://www.python.org/dev/doc/devel/

but there don't seem to be tarballs of very recent docs.  You can get
the 2.3b2 docs from

    http://www.python.org/ftp/python/doc/2.3b2/

or you can wait a few days for the 2.3c1 docs (I think).

As you seem to be on Linux, it's not hard to build the docs from the
(LaTeX) source: try cd-ing into Doc/ and typing make.  Installing all
the needed tools can be a bit annoying, but recently I've found
everything comes with the base install of (eg.) RedHat systems.

Cheers,
M.
