Since the release of Docutils 0.18 today building Python documentation fails.

In CPython repository we have Sphinx pinned to 3.2.1, which has too loose requirement for Docutils version in install_requires – docutils>=0.12.

Example of failing build:

My suggestion is to pin down docutils in docs requirements.
