As Ethan says, not a moron. (Though the way he put it, he sounded like Wheatley... and if you don't know what I'm talking about, check out Portal and Portal 2, they're games well worth playing.) One of the beauties of text is that it's easy to research; if someone drops a term like "top-posting", you key that into your search engine, and voila, extra information. This is another advantage of separate standards and common conventions. Everything works with everything else, because it is simple and because nobody has to do everything themselves. How do you use git to manage your CPython source tree? It's exactly the same as using git for anything else, so you don't need Python-specific information, just git-specific information. How do you use a mailing list to discuss proposed language changes in Python? Again, it's generic stuff about mailing lists, so you don't need anything from Python. This is why we work with open standards. Email and mailing lists are an important part of this.
