To transfer the docstring of one function to another function with the same name means copying the documentation (i.e., comments, descriptions, and explanations about the function's purpose, parameters, return values, exceptions, etc.) written in the docstring of one function, and pasting it into the docstring of another function that has the same name. This is done to ensure that the documentation of the function with the same name is accurate and up-to-date. This process can be especially helpful when refactoring or maintaining code with many similar functions, as it allows for consistent documentation across multiple functions with the same name.
