If you mean this text under Lock.acquire:
When invoked with the blocking argument set to False, do not block. If a call
with blocking set to True would block, return False immediately; otherwise,
set the lock to locked and return True.
that pretty clearly (to me) describes blocking=False, by contrasting it with a
behaviour that would obtain if blocking=True. It is in the clause describing
"the blocking argument set to False", after all.
