We have errata in notes/api-errata/, and the release notes could point
to them.

Documentation… I think there's just the README files in the source,
release notes of past minor lines, and the example code in
#svn.developer.usingapi.codesamples in the book?

Cheers,

Daniel

P.S. The example code in that section of the book won't work in
Python 3 (due to using py2-only "print" and "except" syntaxes). We
should probably add some text explaining the example code is py2 but
the bindings support py3 as well (as explained in the 1.l4 release
notes), or better yet, port the examples to py3.
