An argument was added to pdb.set_trace() in Python 3.7 and those fragments of documentation should have been updated:

library/functions.rst:120
> By default, sys.breakpointhook() calls pdb.set_trace() expecting no arguments.

library/sys.rst
> For example, the default binding (e.g. pdb.set_trace()) expects no arguments, but you might bind it to a function that expects additional arguments (positional and/or keyword).

I am a first-time contributor, can I start working on this?
