The branch '2.1' does not exist.
Python Misc subdirectory
========================

This directory contains files that wouldn't fit in elsewhere, in
particular the UNIX manual page, an Emacs mode for Python source code,
and a list of Frequently Asked Questions (and their answers).  Some
documents are only of historic importance.
