[New-bugs-announce] [issue12360] Doc Typo

New submission from Martin Marcher <martin at marcher.name>:

Slight typo in the docs.

I don't quite know how to work with mercurial. Hope it'll just work to merge the bitbucket link.

Typo is here: http://docs.python.org/py3k/library/asyncore.html#asyncore.dispatcher.handle_accepted (but also present in tip)

The parameter is named *sock*, but the docs talk about *conn*.
