[Letsencrypt-devel] Building letsencrypt packages on Ubuntu 15.10

When building python-acme and letsencrypt on Ubuntu 15.10, the builds
fail because Sphinx cannot find the ``sphinx_rtd_theme`` Python
module. However, the builds are not broken on Debian unstable.

Looking at sphinx's debian/changelog [1], I found that:

- sphinx 1.3.1-1 introduced a dependency on python[3]-sphinx-rtd-theme
- Debian unstable includes sphinx 1.3.1-7 [2]
- Ubuntu 15.10 includes sphinx 1.2.3+dfsg-1ubuntu3 [3]
- python-acme and letsencrypt depends on python-sphinx (>=

Thus, you should either:

- Change your minimum required version of python-sphinx to 1.3.1-1, or
- Explicitly depend on python[3]-sphinx-rtd-theme.

I'd prefer the explicit dependency, as that would make the packages
buildable on existing Ubuntu dists.
