somekool is on #bcfg2 as somekool, just recording this for posterity; it's also up at

BCFG2 errors messages I have trouble with;

- the page is not so descriptive into finding causes/solutions
- many clients return the following error everytime bcfg2 is run
no server x509 fingerprint; no server verification performed!

- Failed to locate basefile for /path/to/foo
i guess this one will start making sens to me once 

- Failed to bind entry: <Type> <item>
this seems to be showing up when mappings returns nothing.
will it show for each items that are unused? if so, it is a warning, that should be specified.
if not, it does not say anything about how to fix

- NotFound: cannot find 'foobar'
- Failed to template /path/to/foo

I just realized those two are working together. seems like foobar is a variable not found in the template for /path/to/foo
but the message could be better. on one line. something like

Failed to template /path/to/foo : variable not found in file PluginDir/path/to/foo/template at line XY


see python backtrace below, why should the info file by a directory?
