Comment(by josefpktd):

 There is still a mistake in the documentation for the discrete
 distributions. The template code still has fit in there, even though fit
 doesn't exist. This should be fixed.

 http://docs.scipy.org/doc/scipy/reference/generated/scipy.stats.binom.html#scipy.stats.binom

 adding a fit method is an enhancement request that might not be so easy to
 do.

 Or:

 We could copy with adjustments the continuous fit method, and it will work
 in some cases, but not always or for all distributions. (continuous fit
 doesn't work for all distributions or cases either, but I think the
 fraction there is small.)
