[New-bugs-announce] [issue30373] Incomplete description of re.LOCALE

Jakub Wilk report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Jakub Wilk:

<https://docs.python.org/3/library/re.html#re.LOCALE> reads:
"Make \w, \W, \b, \B, \s and \S dependent on the current locale."

But this is not the only thing this flag does. When combined with re.IGNORECASE,  it also makes case-insesitive matching locale-dependent.
