[New-bugs-announce] [issue23936] Wrong references to deprecated find_module instead of find_spec

New submission from Raúl Cumplido:

While taking a look on the import mechanisms I've seen in the documentation that find_module has been deprecated for find_spec, but on different parts of the documentation there are still references to find_module, as in the definition of sys.meta_path (https://docs.python.org/3/library/sys.html#sys.meta_path).

Shouldn't it be (example on this case) a list of finder objects that have their find_spec() methods called, instead of find_module method?

I've been taking a look on _bootstrap.py and I can see we call find_spec:

for finder in sys.meta_path:
    with _ImportLockContext():
            find_spec = finder.find_spec

If you agree with me that this is wrong I'll submit a patch to fix it.
