Unfortunately, there's currently no good place for this kind of detailed syntax reference documentation to go. The library reference doesn't cover syntax, the tutorial doesn't go into detailed semantics, and the language reference is written more for language implementors than it is for users.

My Python User's Reference project ( was designed to fill that gap, but I never found the time to do the ReST conversion myself, and nobody ever expressed interest in helping out with it, so it's now five years out of date.

Creating a cut down version of that as the "Python Syntax Reference" might be a reasonable approach. However, it's a project that could easily start life outside the core CPython repository.
