Sorry, that commit is not enough, because after applying it the build fails
with a new error:

  Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/sphinx/domains/std.py", line 592, in note_citation_refs
      if node['refdomain'] == 'std' and node['reftype'] == 'citation':
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/docutils/nodes.py", line 567, in __getitem__
      return self.attributes[key]
  KeyError: 'refdomain'

So you also need to apply this patch to docs/_ext/githubsphinx.py file:

After applying both patches the build succeeds.
