It's an unforeseen interaction between new PBR changes to support
Setuptools 8 and the way docutils supports Py3K by running 2to3
during installation (entrypoint scanning causes pre-translated
docutils to be loaded into the execution space through the egg-info
writer PBR grew to be able to record Git SHA details outside of
version strings). A solution is currently being developed.
