Perhaps there is a doubt how to read it?

Would it be better if we remove the indentation and use this sentence(?):
if documentation is in python-foo-doc, do not move it

Myself, I read it as the first option.

I would personally use:

- Do not remove python-foo-doc and do not rename it to python3-foo-doc.

Or maybe even expand as two bullet points:

- Do not remove python-foo-doc.
- Do not rename it to python3-foo-doc.

I think this makes it very explicit what was intended.

+1.  I also read it as (do (not (remove python-foo-doc) or (not (rename
to python3-foo-doc)))).  In natural language that "or" should be a
"nor", but breaking it into two negated bullet points may be clearer to
those whose first language doesn't possess a negative list operator.

please could one of you open an issue with a patch to track the change?

Thanks, Matthias
