From the documentation pages for python 2.7 and 3.4, 3.5, 3.6 it is possible to select another python version in the breadcrumb at the top left of the page. This is not available for python 2.6, 3.2 and  3.3.

See related issue which is closed.

I posted this on pythondotorg but I guess this is a cpython issue not a website issue. https://github.com/python/pythondotorg/issues/868

Berker Peksag response to the report
"The version switcher is activated via a versionswitcher option in Doc/Makefile in CPython codebase. Docs are generated daily by using that Makefile, but 2.6, 3.2 and 3.3 are in security-fix-only mode (which means they won't even get documentation fixes) so the daily build script skips generating docs for those versions."

Thanks for the report, but as I said in the GitHub issue, the version switcher works as expected (we don't build docs of security-only-fix branches).
