Hi Evelyn,

Enjoyed my first Pythoneers meeting - hope to learn more about Python 
between attending the meetings and monitoring the list (and lots onf 
programming and reading, of course!).

Re: applications that analyze Python code and create documentation, there 
seem to be a few packages in the works. According to the pythondoc home page 
README, pythondoc has not been updated in over a year, which makes me wonder 
if some other package like Happydoc has taken Pythondocs' place as the 
'standard' among Python developers for creating python documentation 
packages from source comments.

What package do you and Sean use, or do you recommend another course for 
creating documentation based on source code comments?
