Dear Maintainer,

I was looking through the Python English 3.7.4 Documentation >> The Python Standard Library >> Internet Protocols and Support and I noticed a minor error in the documentation.

As of the date of this email, under the documentation for class urllib.request.AbstractBasicAuthHandler(password_mgr=None), it reads as "This is a mixin class that helps with HTTP authentication, both to the remote host and to a proxy. password_mgr, if given, should be something that is compatible with HTTPPasswordMgr https://docs.python.org/3/library/urllib.request.html#urllib.request.HTTPPasswordMgr ; refer to section HTTPPasswordMgr Objects  https://docs.python.org/3/library/urllib.request.html#http-password-mgr for information on the interface that must be supported. If passwd_mgr also provides is_authenticated..."

passwd_mgr should be password_mgr. This seems to be the only place in the documentation where this function argument is misspelled.
