Description (last modified by )
There is a sign error in the Steenrod multiplication routine at odd primes: with
A=SteenrodAlgebra(3) Q=A.Q_exp P=A.P print (Q(0,1)*P(3))*Q(1,1) print Q(0,1)*(P(3)*Q(1,1))
one gets
Q_0 Q_1 Q_2 2 Q_0 Q_1 Q_2
Only the 2nd answer is correct.

Hi John, the indentation is now fixed. Hope I'll have something less trivial to contribute some day ;-)

I couldn't get your patch to apply, so I made a new one. Mercurial queues are a good way to deal with this sort of situation, in my experience.

Hi Christian, welcome aboard. The patch looks very good, except for a very minor detail: the example in the doctest should be indented one more space. Fix that, and I'll give it a positive review. By the way, if you want, you can add your name to the list of account names on the wiki.
