#2540 closed enhancement (fixed)

Lots of ignored exceptions in buildbot

Reported by: buck Owned by: dustin
Priority: critical Milestone: 0.9.0
Version: 0.8.7p1 Keywords: simple


I've been bitten twice by ignored, unlogged exceptions in the "nine" branch preventing buildbot from running correctly.

I did a quick scan and found a bunch of questionable exception handlers.

As a bare minimum, these should log the exception.

  • Keywords simple added
  • Milestone changed from undecided to 0.9.0
  • Priority changed from major to critical
  • Type changed from undecided to enhancement

Bare except's are definitely to be avoided.

It would be great to fix all of these and then enable the corresponding pep8 check, so that we don't re-introduce them.
