Yak Shaving Series #1: All I need is a little bit of disk space
Yevgeniy Brikman

Worked on a similar scenario last week. A script was using a cfg file via ConfigParser module in Python. Requirement was to use a yaml file instead of cfg. I made required changes in main script but forgot to change references of secondary scripts from cfg to yaml. While testing, everything worked fine because the cfg file was still lying around. I checked in all the code (removing cfg and adding yaml), now when the user tried, he obviously failed as the secondary script was referring to a cfg file which no longer existed. *Facepalm* a quick fix and sanity was restored.

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
