[New-bugs-announce] [issue30380] Sphinx 1.6.1 raising new warnings in docs build

New submission from Brett Cannon:

The Travis file uses `make venv` which does `python3 -m pip install --upgrade sphinx` which is pulling in Sphinx 1.6.1 which was released today (under Python 2.7 the pip call is direct instead of using `make venv`). The problem is that Sphinx 1.6.1 adds some new warnings that then is flagging the docs build as failing.

To fix this we should probably stop calling `make venv` in .travis.yml and instead explicitly install Sphinx 1.5.6 for the docs build.

Once Travis is green again a separate PR can be done to update `master` to build cleanly under Sphinx 1.6.1.
