Windows 10

How to reproduce

  1. Setup repositories as described in #5994.
  2. Attempt to run release automation as described in #5994.

Observed behaviour

The release automation fails on Windows with the error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "D:\dev\scratch5994\adblockpluschrome\", line 17, in <module>
  File "D:\dev\scratch5994\adblockpluschrome\buildtools\", line 139, in <module>
    make_argument('output_file', nargs='?')
  File "D:\dev\scratch5994\adblockpluschrome\buildtools\", line 42, in wrapper
    short_desc, long_desc = func.__doc__.split(os.linesep + os.linesep, 1)
ValueError: need more than 1 value to unpack

Expected behaviour

Release automation to successfully run on Windows too. We should probably split using regex as described by Wladimir here.
