#2620 F35 Change: Sphinx 4
Closed: Accepted 4 months ago by kevin. Opened 4 months ago by bcotton.

Sphinx 4, popular Python documentation generator and framework, has been released in May 2021. It brings many bug fixes, new features including breaking changes and removes long deprecated functions.

In Fedora 35 we will update python-sphinx (providing python3-sphinx) to the latest version 4.x.

Package maintainers whose packages will stop building with the Sphinx 4 have these options:

  • they fix their documentation packages to work with Sphinx 4,
  • they stop building documentation subpackages,
  • they create compat package to extend the lifespan of Sphinx 3.x features. Python-maint team can assist with creating the compat package, however we don't like this solution and discourage from doing so.

  • Change proposal

  • devel-announce post
  • devel list discussion
