While running make docs sphinx generates a warning that there are duplicate labels named `_examples`. It seems it's present in `c-api/typeobj.rst` and `distutils/examples.rst` as below : 

➜  Doc git:(master) rg '.. _examples:'
2324:.. _examples:

1:.. _examples:

# Warning

2018-07-10T07:30:36.8709047Z /opt/vsts/work/1/s/Doc/distutils/examples.rst:5: WARNING: duplicate label examples, other instance in /opt/vsts/work/1/s/Doc/c-api/typeobj.rst

Sample log :

There are no references to the label as far as I have checked and I suppose this is an easy fix to be done if someone wants to take it up. The effect is that in the page the following text links to distutils/examples for the text "Examples" which should ideally link to

"In addition to the following quick reference, the Examples section provides at-a-glance insight into the meaning and use of PyTypeObject."

It will be also helpful if sphinx warnings are made as an error in CI so that these are caught there.
