To get documentation about a module installed in a venv, one needs to use “python -m pydoc” instead of just “pydoc”; I would like a pydoc script with the appropriate shebang to be installed in the venv’s bin dir.

Similar request in virtualenv for the reference: https://github.com/pypa/virtualenv/issues/149
