[New-bugs-announce] [issue6679] obsolete paragraph in re doc for re.sub

Mitchell Model report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Mitchell Model <mlm at acm.org>:

The documentation of re.sub states:

"The pattern may be a string or an RE object; if you need to specify
regular expression flags, you must use a RE object, or use embedded
modifiers in a pattern; for example, sub("(?i)b+", "x", "bbbb BBBB")
returns 'x x'."

but there is now a flags argument so that paragraph should be deleted.
