The documentation of matrix_action_left and matrix_action_right for binary quadratic forms are reversed.

sage: Q = BinaryQF([1,2,3]); Q
x^2 + 2*x*y + 3*y^2
sage: A = matrix(QQ,2,2,[1,2,3,4])
sage: R.<x,y> = QQ[]
sage: Q(x+2*y,3*x+4*y)
34*x^2 + 96*x*y + 68*y^2
sage: Q.matrix_action_left(A)
17*x^2 + 74*x*y + 81*y^2
sage: Q.matrix_action_left?
Here the action of the matrix `M = \begin{pmatrix} a & b \\ c & d
\end{pmatrix}` on the form `Q(x, y)` produces the form `Q(ax+by,
