You missed correcting the typo here.  Also (someone can correct me if
I'm wrong) I think we generally leave the what's new updates to to the

+* The :func:`shutil.copytree` function has two new options
+  * ignore_dangling_symlinks: when symlinks=false (meaning that the function
+    copy the file pointed by the symlink, not the symlink itself)
+    this option will silent the error thrown if the file doesn't exists.
+  * copy_function: a callable that will be used to copy files.
+    :func:`shutil.copy2` is used by default.
