Bug Description

when using the master release tarball and running
python build_sphinx

it fails, because the newly added reno module calls git
which returns an error, because there is no git tree
and that fails the build.

I think it is a good candidate of improvement in reno.

At the moment, the easiest way we can do in neutronclient side is not to include our release notes (release-notes directive) in our documentation and instead point the url<project> instead.

Reno (or other tool chains) can be improved to generate release notes during "python sdist" or similar process
so that the documentation which contains 'releasenotes' sphinx directive can be generated even out of git tree.

Per Doug's mail on release notes,
the release notes and the normal developer documentation should be built separately.

    Do not include reno releasenotes in normal documentation

    Per the recent release note guidelines for libraries [1],
    reno based release notes will be moved out from the normal docs.
    The previous (partial) release notes are also moved to
    releasenotes directory. The developer documentation now
    has a link to the releasenote web site.

    In addition, having reno directive in normal sphinx document
    prevents users from generating our docs from release tarballs.

This issue was fixed in the openstack/python-neutronclient 4.0.0 release.

We're working on a solution that will allow us to generate sdists with release notes included
