[New-bugs-announce] [issue32519] venv API docs - symlinks default incorrect

New submission from Jason R. Coombs <jaraco at jaraco.com>:

In the API docs for EnvBuilder.symlinks, it states "Defaults to True on Linux and Unix systems, but False on Windows." But in fact, the implementation takes the value passed, which always defaults to False. It's only on the command-line that the default is inferred from the system. Presumably, the fix is to strike that sentence from the docs.
