I know understand one thing I missed.
I needed to do `make venv` after changing the make file to get 3.10 in virtual environment.
The issue being that this would make doc harder to create on ubuntu since 3.10 is not yet easily accessible through apt/snap.

Anyway, even when it's done, when 3.10-venv is installed on my machine and I remake venv, and I run doctest, it still fails with:

Document: library/statistics

Warning, treated as error:
File "library/statistics.rst", line 150, in default
Failed example:
    fmean(grades, weights)
Exception raised:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/lib/python3.10/", line 1348, in __run
        exec(compile(example.source, filename, "single",
      File "<doctest default[2]>", line 1, in <module>
        fmean(grades, weights)
    TypeError: fmean() takes 1 positional argument but 2 were given

Which comes from the fact that fmean got a new argument in 3.11 it didn't had in 3.10

So I guess the only way to actually get make doctest to work is if the virtual env uses the version of python in main. Is there anyway to do that?
