Most of the documentation for the extract and extractall methods refers to a parameter named numeric_owner. However, the notes on what changed in v3.5 refer instead to numeric_only. One of these names is incorrect and should be changed to match the other.

Same issue in the 3.6 and 3.7 docs.

The offending commit is revision 6b70f16d585a. The true name is numeric_owner; numeric_only is wrong. The name also needs fixing in Doc/whatsnew/3.5.rst.
