[New-bugs-announce] [issue14434] Tutorial link in "help()" in 3.2.2

New submission from Bill Winslow <bunslow at gmail.com>:

I installed "python3" to get into a good scripting language.

I ran "python3" and it said type "help". I did and it said type "help()" for interactive help, or "help(object)" for specific help. Just looking to get started, I did the former, where the message displayed says "Welcome to Python 3.2!  This is the online help utility.

If this is your first time using Python, you should definitely check out
the tutorial on the Internet at http://docs.python.org/tutorial/."

The link, unfortunately, leads to the Python 2.7 documentation, which is rather useless considering I'm trying to learn 3.2. The proper link should be http://docs.python.org/py3k/tutorial/.

Yes, this is really minor, but it would help with the "completeness" or "professional" appearance.
