A Python routine to build a fake httplib2.Response object out of a Requests object, two bottlecaps and some twine.

# This is a four-part process, and it's awful, and I'm sorry. I'd have
# automated more of it, but the interstitials we've put on the etherpads
# have foiled my efforts there and I wanted to get this out fast.
# This will give you:
# - A folder full of all your team pads in their current state
# in text form, and
# - A single zipped file of containing all of them.

# You need to open a terminal app, either retype or paste in the following two lines:
# This will probably make your Apple Remote stop working, and definitely makes the media
# buttons on your keyboard stop working. Breaking one piece of OSX to make some other
# piece of OSX work right is apparently where we are now.

View venvgit2 installation solution
Python's pygit2 does not work correctly in a virtualenv for reasons I have not explored.
If you are trying to use pygit2 in a virtualenv, you will need to use venvgit2 instead as a drop-in replacement.
Using that, you can "include pygit2" as usual. However, you will need to first:
apt-get install cmake gcc-5 libffi-dev
And then:

# Change bluetooth audio parameters on OSX to solve dropping/choppy audio problems on Yosemite
# (and earlier, reportedly) w/ BT headphones. This is not a perfect solution, but reduces

# This will give all the ICSE2015/2016 papers filenames extracted from the titles of the PDF metadata,
# and put them in a folder on your desktop. It's been tested on OSX and depends on wget and pdfinfo,
# available via the macports xpdf package on pre-Yosemite OSX, and here for Yosemite users:
# It's a manual install, unfortunately, but I trust you're geared up for that.
