b32decode() documentation says: "A TypeError is raised if s were incorrectly padded or if there are non-alphabet characters present in the string."

b32decode() docstring says: "binascii.Error is raised if the input is incorrectly padded or if there are non-alphabet characters present in the input."

Actually binascii.Error (which is a ValueError subtype) is raised if the input is incorrectly padded and TypeError is raised if there are non-alphabet characters present in the input.

At least 2 of 3 (documentation, docstring and implementation) should be corrected.

Base32 support was originally added in 3cc0d8fd4e2b (TypeError was used everywhere) and then modified in eb45f85c4c79 (TypeError was partially changed to binascii.Error).
