Not really :) Some time ago we moved all documentation (except for a
few static information) from the website to the wiki, under
http://wiki.maemo.org/PyMaemo , to facilitate and encourage community
contribution. This included old (Maemo 3.x) documentation. If you know
of any working URLs of Maemo 3.x documentation that are in
http://pymaemo.garage.maemo.org/ , please let us know :).

Now, about any Maemo 3.x Python documentation found on the wiki, I
personally think they should have the same treatment as the C ones
will have (e.g. dump + archive somewhere, move to a separate wiki
namespace not searchable by default through mediawiki search).

I hope these PDFs could be migrated to wiki whenever
possible/feasible, except for those who are meant for non-online media
by default, like lengthy books and slides (although I would prefer
slides to be also available on some online browser system with
download option).

I think the task force for wiki reorganization made some time ago
helped a lot improving this. I hope it could be done more regularly,
though. I also find some Maemo documentation appearing on Forum Nokia
wikis from time to time... Not sure how to deal with them :) (FWIW the
same applies to Symbian documentation as well, split between forum
nokia and symbian.org wikis).
