Package: python-sympy
Version: 0.5.9-1
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

It would be nice if isympy's welcome message would include information
about the documentation (like it does for example with attached patch).

Even better would be if python-sympy would include sympy's documentation
itself and the message hinting to the location of that. (so one can also
read it without internet connection).
