According to the official tutorial on virtual environment,

"""
This will create the tutorial-env directory if it doesn’t exist, and also create directories inside it containing a copy of the Python interpreter, **the standard library**, and various supporting files.
"""

But according to PEP 405 and the actual behavior of venv, the standard library won't be copied. I'm not sure if I'm having a misunderstanding of this expression.
