[New-bugs-announce] [issue7530] doc of multiprocessing.managers is wrong (server_forever)

Stefan Schwarzburg report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Stefan Schwarzburg <stefan.schwarzburg at googlemail.com>:

The documentation of multiprocessing.managers.BaseManager 
refers to a method "serve_forever". This method is only available at the
server object inside BaseManager (e.g.
manager.get_server().serve_forever() ).

I would rephrase the text to:
"Once created one should call start() or get_server().serve_forever()" 

instead of the current phrase:
"Once created one should call start() or serve_forever()" 

The method description for "serve_forever()" should be removed from
BaseManager, instead there should be an additional section about the
server object returned by get_server().
