Why does e.g. configparser.ConfigParser contain doc strings with Sphinx incompatible markup?

The markup starts with back-tick, but ends with a single quote.


Sphinx writes these messages:
D:\git\PoC\py\lib\ExtendedConfigParser\ of lib.ExtendedConfigParser.ExtendedConfigParser.read_file:3: WARNING: Inline interpreted text or phrase reference start-str
ing without end-string.

Note: ExtendedConfigParser is class derived from configparser.ConfigParser. Inherited methods get documented too.

Btw. I have some improvements for this class, how can I contribute them? Who is the maintainer for this class? Please contact me:

The improved version is available at GitHub:
