The Python FAQ is available at

and it has answers to many questions that people ask, possibly...

The link : points to Python 2 resources, please change it to point Python 3 FAQ, i.e.

The `http` in links can also be changed to `https. It doesn't help anyway as the link automatically takes to `https` sites.

Thank you for noticing. As of this moment, has 3 links to the repository and issue tracker, which contains the website.  Website issues (as opposed to should be reported there.

As it happens, the page has been updated.  "First check the Python FAQs, with answers to many common, general Python questions." links to the url you suggest.  'FAQ' at the bottom of the page has a shorter link that also goes to the /3/ version.
