[New-bugs-announce] [issue14257] minor error in glossary wording regarding __hash__

Chris Rebert report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Chris Rebert <pybugs at rebertia.com>:

The entry for "dictionary" reads in part:
    [...] The keys can be any object with __hash__() function and __eq__() methods. [...]

__hash__() is a method, not a function (well, it's a "hash function" in the computer science sense, but it's still confusing even if that reading is what was intended; I think delegating the hashing part of the explanation to __hash__()'s docs is fine). Remove the word "function" from said sentence.
