[New-bugs-announce] [issue10893] The docs mark staticmethod as a function

New submission from Ram Rachum <cool-rr at cool-rr.com>:

The Python documentation uses :func:`staticmethod` to describe staticmethod, while staticmethod is a type.

I want to link to the Python documentation from my project's documentation using Intersphinx, and I wouldn't want to mislead my users by marking static method as a function.
