    I was not here 21 years ago when it was introduced [1], but according to the commit message it was introduced to find leftover Latex mardown.

    It tries to find 4 patterns in Sphinx node text (not in raw rst files):

    ::(?=[^=])| # two :: (but NOT ::=)

    This one has ~100 false positive in susp-ignored.csv (pypi classifiers, slices, ipv6, ...)

    :[a-zA-Z][a-zA-Z0-9]+| # :foo

    This one has ~300 false positive in susp-ignored.csv (slices, C:\, ipv6, ...)

    | # (seldom used by itself)

    This one has ~20 false positive in susp-ignored.csv (mostly reStructuredText in code-blocks)

    (?<!\.)\.\.[ \t]*\w+: # .. foo: (but NOT ... else:)

    This one does not have false positives.

    The script, on my laptop (with a core i9), is slow (4mn20s), and it's probably way slower on the CI.

    I tried to search for suspicious is:pr in:comments on github to see if it's usefull:

    Case where it actually helped:

    I'd go for enhancing (which is fast, ~1s on my laptop) a bit to try to handle the `.. literalinclude:` missing a `:` errors, and dropping suspicious.

    So I'd appreciate feedback on this script, did it helped you recently?

    I would love to see this disappear. For me, it has been a recurring time waster.

    If it still does useful checks, we could just limit it to running by release managers during the release manufacturing process; it is already run then. It would still allow for problems to be caught and fixed by the RM prior to release tagging. But I don't have a strong opinion about its overall usefulness. I recall it catching at least one problem in a release I was involved with and that was probably before we had the CI checks.

    Good idea Ned!

    So proposed plan:

    • Drop it from docs build and the CI to avoid time loss.
    • Add it as a step of PEP-101, for a few release, for good measures
    • I'll check it from time to time between releases, just to ensure it does not accumulate tons of things to do on the the release day.

    If during a few release, we notice this tool is no loger usefull we'll be able to drop it.

    If we spot some errors that can be migrated to the we'll do.

    If this tool is in fact usefull, we'll have to think about it again.

    I'll try to track this closely, the drop of make suspicious has been merged in master, but not backported yet, one week ago.

    Up to today, no commit has introduced suspicious warnings (0 false positive, 0 false negative).

    I think I'll soon backport the PR, if no one objects, because the current situation is a bit risky: some PR could get merged to master but fail the tests during the backport.

    Today I spotted one error that suspicious could have spotted:

    -both ``Callable``s no longer validate their ``argtypes``, in 
    +both ``Callable``\ s no longer validate their ``argtypes``, in 

    I'm fixing it in #23800

    make suspicious found it as:

    [whatsnew/changelog:23] "`" found in "Callable``s no longer validate their ``argtypes"

    So I'll doodle around this to see if tools/ or Sphinx itself can see the error.

    I created #23802 with a port of the "wrong backtick detector" (at least, one aspect from it) from suspicious to rstlint.

    I dropped the suspicious check three weeks ago, and found a single committed issue since then, which was fixable (and is fixed) in rstlint, so I'll continue this experience and see where it goes.

    Copy link

    Pablo reenabled the check:

    commit 20ac347 (upstream/master, master)
    Author: Pablo Galindo <>
    Date: Mon Apr 12 20:53:15 2021 +0100

    Fix Sphinx errors in the documentation and re-activate the suspicious check (GH-25368)
    The suspicious check is still executed as part of the release process and release managers have been
    lately fixing some actual errors that the suspicious target can find. For this reason, reactivate the suspicious
    until we decide what to do in a coordinated fashion.

    Copy link

    Background on why I reactivated it:

    I every single alpha release I had to fix actual documentation errors (no false positives) like the one fixed here:


    I don't like the check, but the release management team don't like to have to restart the release process just fo fix a bunch of docs issues that should have been detected by the CI.

    If we remove the fix, we need to coordinate all together because currently the status quo is that the RM team now is responsable of fixing the documentation errors as there are several release tools (and other ones) that depend on this target passing.

    Copy link

    If reactivated, the tool needs to be substantially improved. It is NOT smart. The false positives for slicing and logging examples are unnecessarily annoying. It creates a barrier for people submitting documentation patches. Each of the 367 entries in the susp-ignored file represents wasted time for contributors.

    Also the CSV format is arcane, hard-to-read, and hard-to-edit. It looks like it was quickly thrown together by someone who didn't care about usability. Perhaps there should be a simpler tools that says, "take this current failure and mark it as a false positive" without trying to be over specific.

    Mandatory checks with a high false positive rate are an anti-pattern for CI systems. Already we've had one case of a contributor (me) who abandoned a doc patch rather than fight this tooling.

    Copy link

    I agree with all you said, but I am against forcing the release management team to absorb the responsibility of fixing all the errors that the CI didn't catch, real or not. Releasing is already a multi-hour process and having many docs errors and formating mistakes to fix is a toll that should be paid at release time.

    Copy link

    Pablo: "I every single alpha release I had to fix actual documentation errors (no false positives)"

    I don't get it. Do you mean that the Python release process is blocked by typos in the documentation? Why did you catch them in the release process, and not in the regular Python development workflow?

    Can't we get the same errors in the regular workflow?

    I understand that the release process requires no warning from "make suspicious", but as explained in other comments, this tool is not reliable. While it catchs some real bugs, the cost of false positives is too high.

    Doc/tools/susp-ignored.csv contains 368 lines, IMO it's a sign that this tool either requires a serious reworking, or must be disabled/removed.

    Doc/tools/extensions/ is a CPython specific extension, it's not part of Sphinx. Maybe someone should open a feature request on Sphinx to get a similar feature without false positives (or at least less false positives).

    Copy link

    Why did you catch them in the release process, and not in the regular Python development workflow?

    Because our release tools run and it fails and then we need to manually inspect every single failure and fix it as almost all times there are real positives among them

    Can't we get the same errors in the regular workflow?

    That's what I did reactivating

    I understand that the release process requires no warning from "make suspicious", but as explained in other comments, this tool is not reliable. While it catchs some real bugs, the cost of false positives is too high

    Sure, we all agree here. Where it seems that we don't agree is how to proceed. I would be super happy to remove the tool if is agreed everywhere, including with the rest of release managers.

    Julien Palard is working actively on the Python documentation. He is the one who removed suspicious "from the CI and docs builds". I trust his judgment here. I suggest to remove it again from there *and* from the release scripts.

    Copy link

    I wrote a PR to enhance -W option documentation. The suspicious job complains whereas my Sphinx format is valid:

    The full form of argument is::


    Example of suspicious error:

    [using/cmdline:438] ":message" found in "action:message:category:module:lineno"

    I see that Doc/tools/suspicious.csv already contains an ignore rule for Doc/using/cmdline.rst.

    Copy link

    Doc/tools/extensions/ is a CPython specific extension, it's not part of Sphinx. Maybe someone should open a feature request on Sphinx to get a similar feature without false positives (or at least less false positives).

    This extension was written by Gabriel Genellina in 2009 when he discovered that:

    Several documents contain invalid reST markup that "leaks"
    into the html output (missing ``, incorrect indentation, etc.)

    Extension added in bpo-4811 with:

    commit 700cf28
    Author: Georg Brandl <>
    Date: Sun Jan 4 10:23:49 2009 +0000

    Add "suspicious" builder which finds leftover markup in the HTML files.
    Patch by Gabriel Genellina.

    The code didn't evolved much since it was added in 2009. Main changes.

    commit 144c269
    Author: Ezio Melotti <>
    Date: Thu Mar 28 18:01:11 2013 +0200

    Update the suspicious builder to detect unused rules, and remove currently unusued rules.

    I should have monitored this more closely, I started monitoring it weekly, then life got over until today when I'm even surprised to see activity on the issue, sry!

    (Surprise leading me to investigate why I had not received notifications from bpo, leading me to a bug in my sieve filter...)

    I counted, during your releases make suspicious spotted:

    if I missed none, the success ratio is not good (which is already known).

    What I'm aiming to do in this issue is to list the true positives over time, by passing the tool manually from time to time, to try to see what kind of rule is usefull in such a tool, and ultimately try to spot those errors in a reliable way.

    I'd go for removing it from both release process and the CI, this would lower pressure on RMs and contributors, while easing the study of the tool in this issue.

    I even consider removing it from the Makefile / tools hierarchy to ensure nobody runs it, because if someone run it locally during its contribution process it may hide true positives from me (leading me to think there's no true positives and the tool is useless).

    Copy link

    At least, I would suggest to remove it from the release process.

    If some people working on the documentation want to keep the tool, maybe it can be an optional CI job? IMO the problem is that currently, it's part of a single "Documentation" job. I don't recall if it's mandatory or not. Also, we need maybe more explanation in the CI job result how to mark false positives.

    Spotted a true positive in b19f455:

    The previous one could probably be implemented in rstlint using (an equivalent of):

    git grep ':[a-z]\+:``[^:` ]+``' Doc/

    Maybe specialized to known roles, like the script specializes to known directives.

    Another true positive:

    10 false positives today, see:

    I think I now need to put a deadline on this issue, let's say: one year without true positives and I drop it, so 2021-07-19 for now.

    (In the meantime, I continue to convert each true positives to rstlint, I converted 3 of them so far.)

    Note: This change is not effective on Microsoft Windows.
    Cookies can store sensitive information and should therefore be protected
    against unauthorized third parties. This is also described in issue #79096.
    The filesystem permissions are currently set to 644, everyone can read the
    file. This commit changes the permissions to 600, only the creater of the file
    can read and modify it. This improves security, because it reduces the attack
    surface. Now the attacker needs control of the user that created the cookie or
    a ways to circumvent the filesystems permissions.
    This change is backwards incompatible. Systems that rely on world-readable
    cookies will breake. However, one could argue that those are misconfigured in
    the first place.

    * Minor optimization for Fractions.limit_denominator (GH-93730)
    When we construct the upper and lower candidates in limit_denominator,
    the numerator and denominator are already relatively prime (and the
    denominator positive) by construction, so there's no need to go through
    the usual normalisation in the constructor. This saves a couple of
    potentially expensive gcd calls.

    * bpo-26253: Add compressionlevel to tarfile stream (GH-2962)
    `tarfile` already accepts a compressionlevel argument for creating
    files. This patch adds the same for stream-based tarfile usage.
    The default is 9, the value that was previously hard-coded.

    * gh-94207: Fix struct module leak (GH-94239)
    Make _struct.Struct a GC type
    This fixes a memory leak in the _struct module, where as soon
    as a Struct object is stored in the cache, there's a cycle from
    the _struct module to the cache to Struct objects to the Struct
    type back to the module. If _struct.Struct is not gc-tracked, that
    cycle is never collected.
    This PR makes _struct.Struct GC-tracked, and adds a regression test.

    Seems in the past the copy of builtins was not made in some scenarios,

    to see it.
