As discussed on #python-dev, building 3.x documentation using python3.x will require Sphinx 1.1 which will not be released in time for 3.2.
I am adding #10225 as a dependency because I feel that fixing actual errors in ReST doctests is more important than upgrading documentation tool chain. Hopefully this will bring more eyes to that issue.
This said, I believe it is important for python-dev to "eat their own dogfood" and make 3.2 self-hosting. In other words, if we want to convince users that 3.x is ready, we should not require 2.x in the build process.
Fortunately, Doc/tools is not shipped with python releases, so the transition can be made at any time regardless of python release schedule.
