This script demonstrates a problem with PostgreSQL set-up on's test machines.
#!/usr/bin/env python
The only dependencies for this script are SQLAlchemy 0.9.2, psycopg2
2.5.2, and Postgres 9.3.2, so you should be able to use it for debugging
yourselves. Also, those are the exact same versions that are being used
in all our other environments, so this problem isn't caused by a slight
version mismatch anywhere.
This test script connects to the Postgres DB, creates a table with a
text column, and then tries to write a Python dictionary object to the
#!/usr/bin/env bash
# Recommended sort: -k2,2 -k1,1
BRANCHES=$(git branch -r | grep $REMOTE | grep -v 'HEAD -> ')
for BRANCH in $BRANCHES ; do
git log -n 1 --pretty="%C(yellow)%ci%Creset %x00 %C(cyan)%an%Creset %x00 %C(blue)<%ae>%Creset %x00 %Cred${BRANCH:7}%Creset" $BRANCH
done | sort -t '\0' $@
echo `echo $BRANCHES | wc -w` "remote ($REMOTE) branches found."

First shalt thou take out the Holy Space Bar, then shalt thou count
to four, no more, no less. Four shall be the number thou shalt count,
and the number of the counting shall be four. Five shalt thou not count,
neither count thou three, excepting that thou then proceed to four.
Tabs are right out. Once the number four, being the fourth number, be
reached, then typest thou thy Holy Source Line of Code towards thy
editor, which being syntactical in My sight, shall execute.
# Like this:
def function(
arg, kurz="klein",
really_long_argument_name="really long default value",
my_result = do_something(
# multiple short arguments on the same line are ok

Nobody installs the Spanish Inquisition.

First shalt thou take out the Holy Virtualenv. Then, shalt thou
install using pip, no more, no less. pip shall be the installer
that thou shalt run. easy_install shalt thou not, nor either shalt
thou install, excepting that thou run via pip.
Sudo is right out. Once pip, being the installer you used, be used,
then installest thou thy Holy Package of Python Module towards
thine Virtualenv, which, being an .egg in my sight, shall install.

The MUNI prayer
View muni.txt
Punctual MUNI, which art in transit,
Punctual be thy name.
Thy arrival come.
Thy will be done, in Noe,
As it is in Dogpatch.
Give us this day our daily transfer.
And forgive us our fare evasions,
As we forgive them that do not know to step down.
And lead us not into Hunter's Point,
But deliver us from our stop.
