Hi Cameron,

I didn't change anything for the presentation - it seems the Sphinx extension used for the presentation [1] will only work with Sphinx 1.6.5 (from 2017). Any newer versions of Sphinx will fail to build the presentation. 

The extension hasn't been updated since 2018, but there are a couple of pull requests [2] that seem to fix the various issues. We could create a fork of this project and update it, or see if anyone wants to become the maintainer. Otherwise, we are stuck with Sphinx 1.6.5 or need to drop the presentation. 

I did fix all the RST errors in the docs except one. The Perl script that generates the presentation seems to have an error on the "Domain Specific GIS" section which contains a single item - the zygrib project. The actual outputted HTML seems fine, but the RST error remains. Ideally the Perl script would be updated, if not could zygrib be moved to the "Spatial Tools" category?

Once the final RST error is fixed I'd propose that any future RST warnings throw an error in the Travis builds so they are caught as early as possible in a pull request.
