[docs] [issue37823] Telnet documentation: fix the link to open()

New submission from Mariatta <mariatta at python.org>:

Bug in the Telnet docs: https://docs.python.org/3/library/telnetlib.html

In the section https://docs.python.org/3/library/telnetlib.html#telnetlib.Telnet the “open()” link should probably point to https://docs.python.org/3/library/telnetlib.html#telnetlib.Telnet.open but instead it points to https://docs.python.org/3/library/functions.html#open

This is newcomer friendly and I would prefer it be done by first time contributors.
