Some other distributions (ubuntu, debian) has a tiny link installed which is a
wrapper around pydoc.cli().
It would be nice to have that script installed on fedora so one can just do:
from the commandline
Sounds like a great idea, will add.
python-2.4.3-8.FC4 has been pushed for fc4, which should resolve this issue. If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
