[New-bugs-announce] [issue44174] Unclear meaning of _Private__names in enum docs.

New submission from Gregory P. Smith <greg at krypto.org>:



Private names will be normal attributes in Python 3.10 instead of either an error or a member (depending on if the name ends with an underscore). Using these names in 3.9 will issue a DeprecationWarning.

It isn't clear from this documentation what is meant by "private names".  Please expand on this to be explicit about what name pattern is being described.
