Now, regarding to your question about "the right path" for your comment :
On every page of Scipy & Numpy docs, there is an "Edit page" link which
leads to a wiki-style editor where everybody can contribute to the


The only requirement for editing is to have a *activated account*, that is :
1) create an account (see the Front Page above) in the wiki
2) send an email here with the username you've chosen
3) "somebody" with the appropriate rights will give you the edit rights
