Commit Message

Bruce Richardson Jan. 17, 2020, 10:48 a.m. UTC
When sphinx-build reports its version information to stderr rather
than stdout, the wrapper script misses it, and then fails to run.
We can fix this by redirecting stderr to stdout for the version
query call.

Fixes: f5ab2074cfba ("doc: rebuild with meson whenever a file changes")
