In
  https://docs.python.org/3.10/howto/descriptor.html#definition-and-introduction

The paragraph reads:
"""
Definition and introduction

In general, a descriptor is an attribute value that has one of the methods in the descriptor protocol. Those methods are __get__(), __set__(), and __delete__(). If any of those methods are defined for an the attribute, it is said to be a descriptor.
"""

I believe it should be either "an attribute" or "the attribute" in the last sentence. Probably missed it because both options would read fine.
