The Windows distribution comes with the docs in a very nice Windows help file .chm form. When displayed, they is a left side bar with a Contents tab. The top entry is 'Python vx.y documentation' followed by 'Python Module Index' and 'What's New in Python' and so on down to 'History and Licence'. Everything on the "Python vx.y documentation' page is listed in the Contents EXCEPT the General Index. Consequently, if one only uses the contents lists, one might not even know it exists. In any case, it is harder to get to than anything else.

I presume the omission is unintentional. In any case, I would like to see it fixed, with 'General Index' added right after the module index entry. I presume this should be easy for someone who knows how the contents list is generated.
