Brett's updated 2to3 guide is currently only on the default branch. This means that the /3/ web docs won't be updated until 3.4 is released later this month and the /2/ web docs and the compiled help files shipped with the Windows installers for 2.7.x and 3.3.x won't be updated at all.

I don't see a good reason to leave it that way, so I think we should backport the updated version wholesale both to get the revised guide available ASAP, and also to ensure the /2/ web docs and the shipped compiled HTML docs are updated.

We should add the new content in issue 20812 before doing the backport.

Good point about the 2.7 backport. I'm still not worried about 3.3, though, by the fact that 3.4 should land in less than a month.

But then if Larry doesn't cherrypick it then backporting would be a good idea, and considering it's probably safer to just backport the changes by doing a whole copy copy then we might as well backport.
