The bcfg2 client tracebacks on a malformed /etc/bcfg2.conf file:

monstar:brown /etc $ cat /etc/bcfg2.conf daf

monstar:brown /etc $ sudo /usr/sbin/bcfg2 -q -v -I Traceback (most recent call last):

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

I committed a slightly different patch in revision [d0cd2ba44a52ef3c458fa80544692d930f9d5341] (SVN r4018). The differences are:

  • it doesn't print the help message (since that won't help with a config file parsing problem)
  • do a blanket except (instead of the specific one) since ConfigParser?.read can throw a bunch of different exceptions.

But overall, this is a good first python/first patch effort ;)
