 Priority:  normal      |   Milestone:  6.3                           
Component:  BOOK        |     Version:  SVN                           
 Severity:  trivial     |    Keywords:                                
------------------------+---------------------------------------------------
 The BLFS-6.3-rc2 book states that to use pythons help('module_name')
 feature it is necessary to download and install the HTML documentation.
 This is incorrect as Python reads the help-information from the installed
 modules themselves using help-strings. The HTML documentation includes the
 same information, but can be browsed without running the interpreter.
