[New-bugs-announce] [issue11073] threading.Thread documentation can be improved

Roy Smith report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Roy Smith <roy at panix.com>:

The documentation for the threading.Thread constructor says:

"target is the callable object to be invoked by the run() method. Defaults to None, meaning nothing is called."

This could be improved by explicitly stating that target is called in a static context.  As written, it takes a bit of thought (and experimentation) to be sure of that.
