[New-bugs-announce] [issue35251] FTPHandler.ftp_open documentation error

New submission from Lysandros Nikolaou <lisandrosnik at gmail.com>:

On https://docs.python.org/3/library/urllib.request.html?highlight=request#ftphandler-objects there is the sentence "The login is always done with empty username and password.", but in the (not so rare) case I am not missing something here, the code does parse the username and password and passes it on to connect_ftp, which then uses them. Should we update the docs?
