New submission from Ken Sato <ksato9700 at gmail.com>:

In the "What’s New In Python 3.9" (Doc/whatsnew/3.9.rst), it says

> Python now gets the absolute path of the script filename specified on the command line (ex: python3 script.py): the __file__ attribute of the __main__ module and sys.path[0] become an absolute path, rather than a relative path.

However, I believe sys.path[0] is already absolute path since the previous versions. We can probably remove "and sys.path[0]" from the phrase to avoid possible confusions.
