In the documentation 'HOWTO Fetch Internet Resources Using urllib2' there is a correction under the heading 'Basic Authentication'

In the line 'The header looks like : ``Www-authenticate: SCHEME realm="REALM"``. ' the word 'Www-authenticate' should be written as 'WWW-Authenticate' .

Error is in 3.2 docs as well.

2.6/3.1 only get security patches. 3.4 is for future enhancements what will not even go into 3.3.

Here's a patch that makes the WWW-Authenticate headers in howto/urllib2 agree with rfc2617.
