[New-bugs-announce] [issue39381] Fix get_event_loop documentation

Andrew Svetlov report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Andrew Svetlov <andrew.svetlov at gmail.com>:

The current documentation says: "If there is no current event loop set in the current OS thread and set_event_loop() has not yet been called, asyncio will create a new event loop and set it as the current one."


This is not correct, a new loop is created implicitly only for the main thread, all other threads require set_event_loop() call
