Open a ticket on their trac (https://fedorahosted.org/fesco/).

The issue here is that the guidelines explicitly permit documentation
and help files; diveintopython is obviously documenting Python, and if
it was bundled with the Python tarball then there wouldn't be any
question at all about this.  So I'm not really sure that the place
where you draw the line is all that clear.

At least the python package itself includes some reasonable
documentation about the language.  But the package that spawned this
duscussion, the device drivers book, actually documents the kernel
where the kernel doesn't really document itself.  And there are other
reviews for this kind of thing pending: javanotes, for example
(https://bugzilla.redhat.com//show_bug.cgi?id=507916) covers Java for
which we have little in-distro documentation, and there's at least one
other package submitted by the same person.  Make sure that the line
you draw is clear with regards those packages as well.
