[New-bugs-announce] [issue9891] Minor doc typo at datamodel.rst: "list" -> "alist"

New submission from Rodrigo Bernardo Pimentel <rbp at isnomore.net>:

The "Built-in methods" item of the "The standard type hierarchy" section of Doc/reference/datamodels.rst uses a list instance called "alist" as an example, and it says "__self__ is set to the object denoted by *list*." It should read "the object denoted by *alist*"

This affects all releases, so I've marked them all. But I suppose we don't care about 2.5 anymore. All the others are listed on docs.python.org (or are "trunk"), and I think should be fixed.

It's a trivial fix, and a single patch works 2.x and another for 3.x.
