[New-bugs-announce] [issue10673] multiprocess.Process join method - timeout indistinguishable from success

New submission from Brian Cain <brian.cain at gmail.com>:
When calling Process' join([timeout]) method, the timeout expiration case is indistinguishable from the successful join. I suppose the 'exitcode' attribute can deliver the necessary information, but perhaps join could stand on its own.
If join() shouldn't be changed, could we make explicit reference to the exitcode attribute in the documentation?
