Click the above link and note the 5th paragraph which goes "By default errors from the listdir() call are ignored."

Please fix it to "By default, errors from the listdir() call are ignored."

So add a comma after "By default," Thanks.

I have included this in a patch I’m preparing to fix several typos at once.

Marking the issue as pending (inferred from Éric msg): Éric, will this be in your July big-push? :)

“pending” does not mean “soon to be fixed”, but “soon to be closed if nobody reacts”.  In the future, we may have auto-closing of pending bugs.

Éric: It's been 3 months now. Have you already committed the big documentation issues change?
msg145785 - (view) Author: Boštjan Mejak (Retro) Date: 2011-10-18 08:48
Yes, Eric, please fix this already. :)

Sorry, I was too busy with real bugs to fix this minor one.

Please fix Python 2.6 branch of docs as well. Thanks.

> Please fix Python 2.6 branch of docs as well. Thanks.

2.6 only receives security fixes any more.
msg148050 - (view) Author: Boštjan Mejak (Retro) Date: 2011-11-21 15:01
That is simply idiotic. Your way of fixing things is idiotic. When you
clearly see the missing comma and you fix it everywhere else but 2.6
because "2.6 only receives security fixes" as if adding a comma to the
documentation would create a big security hole. That's an act of an idiot.
I am sorry, but that is how I see it.
msg148053 - (view) Author: Ezio Melotti (ezio.melotti) * (Python committer) Date: 2011-11-21 15:04
It's not because of the security risk, but simply because the docs for 2.6 are not rebuilt automatically anymore.  So, even if we fix it on 2.6, no one will see the change unless someone goes and triggers a full doc rebuild manually.  A missing comma is not enough to justify this extra work.
msg148067 - (view) Author: Benjamin Peterson (benjamin.peterson) * (Python committer) Date: 2011-11-21 18:06
The reason is simply that 2.6 basically unmaintained.
