IIRC, this has come up before, but I don't recall the resolution (if there
was any) and GMANE doesn't search for periods so there appears to be no
efficient way to search the list for info.py AND .rst ("info.py" returned
occurrences of .py) - does anyone recall and/or know where/how to find that
thread?
