One of the required CI tests is a Travis doc build, even if a PR does not touch any doc file.  The following failure appears to be deterministic on master and 3.8.  A 3.7 backport passed.  It has happened multiple times on multiple PRs today.  Example:
The failure is
Warning, treated as error:
[distutils/examples:267] "`" found in "This is the description of the ``foobar`` package."
I have no idea why this is seen as suspicious.

I have 4 PRs blocked by this.
The last one is the 3.8 backport of a PR that passed CI maybe 12 hours ago.  Its 3.7 backport passed and is merged.

If nothing else, can warnings not be treated as errors?

This particular error used to be covered here: but looks like a line number change has broken it.

Although the error message says line 267, the suspicious line is on 273 for the copies in my repository on windows.  If 267 does not work, I will revise and merge my overlapping PR that removes the number.  Most of the entries in susp-ignored.csv do not have line numbers, which seems less fragile. I don't think that this entry needs one either.  The prefix "This is the description of the" does not appear elsewhere in the file, is unlikely to, and if the sentence were repeated, it would likely not be an issue anyway.
