In Python 3.8, the types of the parameters to the ignore callable appear to have changed.

Previously the `src` parameter was a string and the `names` parameter was a list of strings. Now the `src` parameter appears to be either a `pathlib.Path` or an `os.DirEntry`, while the `names` parameter is a set of strings.

I would suggest adding the following to the documentation https://github.com/python/cpython/blob/master/Doc/library/shutil.rst

   .. versionchanged:: 3.8
      The types of arguments to *ignore* have changed. The first argument 
      (the directory being visited) is a func:`os.DirEntry` or a 
      func:`pathlib.Path`; Previously it was a string. The second argument is
      a set of strings; previously it was a list of strings.
