For what it's worth, an experiment in a different context (scons 3.0.1,
working against current git of scons, Fedora 27 system so different
versions of other pkgs), I still end up with the same AttributeError
though of course the traceback looks different:

line 496, in handle_consolidated_bullet_list
    if child.data[:1] in ':-':
AttributeError: 'Text' object has no attribute 'data'

Problem with epydoc? or with the way it's being called in the scons tree?

maybe there are more particular setup requirements, we'll have to wait
for the experts.
