My project contains a
install_requires=[ ... 'sphinxcontrib-disqus' ]
It's installed from an sdist via
easy_install mypackage.tar.gz. This causes
sphinxcontrib_disqus to be installed to
make html then, this warning is raised:
copying static files... WARNING: html_static_path entry '/usr/local/lib/python3.5/ dist-packages/sphinxcontrib_disqus-1.0.0-py3.5.egg/sphinxcontrib/_static' does not exist
Consequently the extension is broken in the resulting built.
