[New-bugs-announce] [issue19445] heapq.heapify is n log(n), not linear
report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Blaise Gassend:
The documentation for heapq.heapify indicates that it runs in linear time. I believe that this is incorrect, and that it runs in worst case n * log(n) time. I checked the implementation, and there are indeed n _siftup operations, which each appear to be worst case log(n).
One example of the documentation pages that are wrong.
