1. The pattern argument for .(r)glob must be relative. I think the docstrings and doc should say so. /pattern/relative pattern/

For rglob: '''This is like calling glob() with “**” added in front of the given pattern:'''

2. Currently "glob()" links to the glob module, which does not recognize '**'. It should link to back up to the Pathlib.glob entry, where the effect of '**' is defined. (I don't currently know the markup for that.)

3. I interpret '''“**” added in front of the given pattern:''' to mean '**' + pattern, so that '*.py' would become '***.py'. It actually becomes the equivalent of '**/*.p'. So I think '**' should be either '**/' or 'a "**" component'.

Do non-relative patterns even make sense?  I was surprised to get a NotImplementedError instead of a ValueError.

Classifying as easy doc bug.

Can you create a pull request on GitHub Mike?

Should I create a Github PR with given patch? If so, how do I give credit to the original author?

The guideline for converting a patch to the PR is documented here:

Since Mike has not responded in more that a week, please go ahead.  Just put "“Original patch by Mike Short."  in the commit comments (if you can, otherwise add a separate comment).  Please add News blurb (see devguide) if you know how, with at least a title line.  Mike has signed the CLA, though it would not matter here since his patch is taken from my message and could be classed as trivial.
