Hi, thanks for the report. This is tracked in the upstream project as

I have not taken care of it yet but plan to investigate and fix it upstream in the somewhat not-too-distant future.

Comment 2 David Moreau Simard 2021-07-20 15:16:30 UTC
I've proposed a fix upstream to resolve the issue with sphinx:

It'll be merged soon and be included in the next release (1.5.7).

Comment 3 Ben Cotton 2021-08-10 13:09:33 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 35 development cycle.
Changing version to 35.

Comment 4 Karolina Surma 2021-08-24 16:04:10 UTC
I see ara 1.5.7 is now present in all supported Fedora versions, ergo closing the ticket.
