That's somewhat ingenuous, since that sentence is immediately preceded 
by """General comments and questions regarding this document should be 
sent by email to docs at python.org. """. I should have thought that 
inability to register a bug on Sourceforge would have justified an email 
to docs at python.org.

Did you send such an email? I'm sure that your comments would be actioned.
