[docs] Little Tutorial Correction

Hello,

http://docs.python.org/tutorial/introduction.html#lists  under this section I read across the following statement:


“All slice operations return a new list containing the requested elements. This means that the following slice returns a shallow copy of the list a:

>>> a[:]“



But as far as I know the behaviour of the [:] operator is on the contrary called deep copying, since the following will return different lists:



A = [1,2,3]

B =A[:]

A[1]=3


Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Kind Regards,
