External RPMs are no-go IMO. We need to have self-standing repositories,
that's what the bug is about (and also the parent bug).
I'm afraid this is invalid bug however, because I see some python-*sphinx*
packages available in epel-7-x86_64 chroot.

Got it, thanks Gerald.
Is the python-sphinx package the same as sphinx???
Ah, OK -- those are different things.. though I was not aware the need for
'sphinx'. Is that really needed, or is that just unused dependency for
Both the copr-backend and the copr-backend-doc package builds fine without the sphinx package...
I'll create a PR for leaving it out for EPEL7..
Turns out sphinx package is not needed for copr:
