I am writing a Python module that uses Numpy. I am trying to follow the Numpy docstring format. In many of my functions, the same parameters show up. It seems repetitive to explain what they are in more than one function from the same module. Is there a common practice when dealing with this?
Add a verbose parameter description to class or package documentation and add short reference to it from every function documentation. Basically, bite the bullet. This can't be automated or conveniently enhanced more.
