Bug in the Telnet docs: https://docs.python.org/3/library/telnetlib.html

In the section https://docs.python.org/3/library/telnetlib.html#telnetlib.Telnet the “open()” link should probably point to https://docs.python.org/3/library/telnetlib.html#telnetlib.Telnet.open but instead it points to https://docs.python.org/3/library/functions.html#open

This is newcomer friendly and I would prefer it be done by first time contributors.

I created a PR for this issue (PR 15281). If any changes are required I'm more than happy to make them.
