Martin Panter added the comment:

According to the history, the parameter was always called “tb” in the implementation <https://hg.python.org/cpython/annotate/93df83022be8/Lib/traceback.py#l7>, and the documentation always had it wrong <https://hg.python.org/cpython/annotate/1c29f6bdd898/Doc/lib/libtraceback.tex#l18>. So I would change the documentation to “tb”.

It looks like other functions in this module have the wrong parameter names also.
