The most comprehensive current documentation is probably https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Toolforge/Web#Using_virtualenv_with_webservice_shell, but that only covers the bare starting instructions for a venv.

I've wondered about making programming language specific collections before. This is how Heroku organizes their getting started docs and in a lot of ways I think that might be easier for newcomers to understand. Maybe @srodlund has some thoughts about how we should be thinking about making this type of specialized detail more discoverable?
