The auto-reply from help@python contains this:

The Python FAQ is available at

        http://docs.python.org/2/faq/index.html

Why is it .org/2/faq, not .org/3/faq?

The autoresponse seems not to be in any .rst, .htm, .html, or .txt file in the cpython/python repository, so this tracker is not the right place for this issue.  I have sent a change request to both help@python.org and webmaster@python.org.

Admit it doesn't seem vastly helpful to pile on with a "not us", but the current webmaster@ autoreply is here: https://github.com/tjguk/python-webmaster/blob/master/auto-responder.txt/.  It contains this link: https://docs.python.org/3/faq/index.html/. Don't know where the help@ one comes from.
