Issue #1048 duplicate
Autodoc does not work well with inherited attributes.
Maybe related, but not the original reason: https://github.com/mitsuhiko/flask/issues/480
class Parent(object): someattr = 'FOO' '''The documentation for someattr. Using #: instead doesn't affect the outcome.''' class Child(object): pass
.. autoclass:: mymodule.Child .. autoattribute:: someattr
Just shows "someattr = 'FOO'" in the docs, but not the docstring.
