[New-bugs-announce] [issue39135] time.get_clock_info() documentation still has 'clock' name

New submission from Michael Wayne Goodman <goodman.m.w at gmail.com>:

The documentation for Python 3.8 and higher still refer to 'clock' as an accepted 'name' argument for time.get_clock_info() that returns a namespace readable by time.clock(), despite time.clock() being removed since Python 3.8.

See the first bullet point in the function documentation: https://docs.python.org/3.8/library/time.html#time.get_clock_info

In Python 3.8, calling time.get_clock_info('clock') raises "ValueError: unknown clock", so it seems the bug is only in the documentation.
