I'm not exactly clear on what this is doing. Is sage_autodoc a copy of the autodoc module from Sphinx with some patches applied? Is the point here just to reapply those patches on top of a newer copy of the module?
(I assume the goal is to eventually do away with the copy entirely...?)

Yes.

No. The point is to reduce the patching, i.e. reduce the diff between the real autodoc and the Sage autodoc.
Ideally, we should eventually reduce the diff to zero (by fixing Sage and/or Sphinx).

Well reduce, sure, but it seems like some of both. That is, you started with the new upstream version, reapplied any patches from Sage, sans patches that are no longer necessary.

It might be nice if there were a comment in the module specifying exactly what version of the upstream code this is based on (e.g. with a link to GitHub at the correct revision). That way it would be easy enough to compare to the original to see what the differences are.

It all started a very long time ago as a fork of the Sphinx autodoc. Many changes have been made, some upstream changes were merged. It's not meaningful to say that it is a fork of a single upstream commit, it's much messier than that.

When I created this ticket, Sage was using Sphinx 1.5.3 so I guess it's best to compare against that: https://github.com/sphinxdoc/sphinx/blob/v1.5.3/sphinx/ext/autodoc.py

What I mean is to just add such a link in the comments in the source, sort of like I did in the comment near the top of https://git.sagemath.org/sage.git/tree/src/sage/cpython/_py2_random.py?id=3ee11e056d80c4a9163e5a8d1a8c92e12c34f25b
You can set positive review once that's done so we can move forward on this.
