Starting with 3.4, the docs for plistlib have had a typo:
https://docs.python.org/3.4/library/plistlib.html#plistlib.readPlist
https://docs.python.org/3.5/library/plistlib.html#plistlib.readPlist
https://docs.python.org/3.6/library/plistlib.html#plistlib.readPlist
https://docs.python.org/3.7/library/plistlib.html#plistlib.readPlist

Functions `readPlist` and `readPlistFromBytes` reference the `__getitem_` method, which should be `__getitem__`.

I'd be happy to submit a PR if there's a repo for the site's documentation.

3.4 and 3.5 can take only security fixes. Create a PR for the master branch. After merging it the changes can be cherry-picked into the 3.6 branch. See details in Python Developer’s Guide (https://docs.python.org/devguide/).

Just noticed the note was removed in commit edef358ed6d in the latest 3.7 docs. Closing issue.

Thanks for the intro on how to contribute though!
