 From http://docs.python.org/3/bugs.html

"Documentation bugs

If you find a bug in this documentation or would like to propose an 
improvement, please send an e-mail to docs at python.org describing the bug 
and where you found it. If you have a suggestion how to fix it, include 
that as well.

docs at python.org is a mailing list run by volunteers; your request will 
be noticed, even if it takes a while to be processed."

For anything more than trivial changes (typos, grammar errors), a 
tracker issue is better. But the above is better than nothing.
