[IPython-dev] AttributeError when running sphinx docs

We are getting a lot of these in SymPy too, sometimes getting them and
sometimes not.  I think it might be a bug in Sphinx or numpydoc.
Otherwise, make sure that you have the right type (i.e., autofunction,
automethod, etc.).

By the way, for SymPy, we've added docs building to our sympy-bot, as
it's the only way that people even consider this in pull requests.
Perhaps you might consider the same for your test_pr.  Otherwise,
people don't even know that things are not Sphinx friendly, and the
build errors just accumulate.
