[New-bugs-announce] [issue39559] uuid.getnode() has unused argument

New submission from Sebastian Rittau <srittau at rittau.biz>:

uuid.getnode() has an undocumented, keyword-only "getters" argument that gets discarded immediately. This is confusing when using code inspection tools and can give the wrong impression that you can somehow override the node getters when you can't. I recommend removing this argument.
