[docs] [issue26378] Typo in regex documentation

David Rager report at bugs.python.org

New submission from David Rager:

In the following sentence, "few" should probably be "fewer."

"Repetitions such as * are greedy; when repeating a RE, the matching engine will try to repeat it as many times as possible. If later portions of the pattern don’t match, the matching engine will then back up and try again with few repetitions."


Thanks for such a great language and documentation!  My apologies if this isn't actually a typo.
