[New-bugs-announce] [issue35584] Wrong statement about ^ in howto/regex.rst

New submission from Julien Palard <julien+python at palard.fr>:

In howto/regex.rst I read:

> '^' outside a character class will simply match the '^' character.

Which looks wrong, '^' is the "begin anchor", it's a metacharacter that typically won't match '^'.

I propose to simply remove the statement, if nobody finds a better idea.
