The new availability directive introduced in  2d6097d027e0dd3debbabc702aa9c98d94ba32a3 ( breaks po files (sphinx-build -b gettext):

Here's the diff I'm getting on os.po from os.rst:

 msgid ""
-"Availability: Unix, Windows.  :func:`spawnlp`, :func:`spawnlpe`, :func:"
-"`spawnvp` and :func:`spawnvpe` are not available on Windows.  :func:"
-"`spawnle` and :func:`spawnve` are not thread-safe on Windows; we advise you "
-"to use the :mod:`subprocess` module instead."
+"Availability: Unix, Windows.  spawnlp(), spawnlpe(), spawnvp() and "
+"spawnvpe() are not available on Windows.  spawnle() and spawnve() are not "
+"thread-safe on Windows; we advise you to use the subprocess module instead."

The roles has been removed in the po files (but not in the original rst files), so it looks like the availability directive caused the drop of roles, but I still don't understand why.

Do you think it needs to be added to Doc\tools\templates?

Sorry, I meant dummy.html in Docs\tools\templates.

No, at first glance it looks like the implementation of the directive in is "removing" the roles.

It's however not removing the roles while building the html, only removing it from po files, so there's a subtility I can't catch here (just spotted this, didn't have time to diagnose it in depth myself).

I found this in the Sphinx doc.  This works on the English-language build OK, so I'm not sure if it's the cause of the issue.

> No nested inline markup: Something like *see :func:`foo`* is not possible.

Hum, the english HTML rendering looks good to me:

So only the PO files are broken, right?

@Cheryl I think it's about nested inline markup. The func is wrapped inside a * and the markup is normal is not nested here. I tried a sample directive as below :

..availability: :func:`len`

PO file

Availability: len()


Availability: :func:`len`

@Victor Yes, PO files are broken and markup is good. They have :func:`len` converted to len() like a method call in the output. Since markdown works fine I guess there is some configuration missing in the custom directive code to ensure translations work the same since there are directives like versionadded that have :func: that work fine in PO files. I tried debugging in sphinx where catalog of messages are returned without markup as noted for Availablity directive and then written to the file. I don't know how to go little above the call stack to debug further since sphinx configuration looks very complicated.


P.S. On mobile please ignore formatting errors if any

Cross-posting here in case it's a sphinx issue:

Tried to debug it a bit at lunch time but the docutils API is still opaque to my eyes :(
