Per PEP594 (
optparse is listed as deprecated as of python 3.2.
It is not scheduled for removal yet, but the following code uses it:

scripts/ optparse import OptionParser
scripts/ optparse

these scripts should use argparse.

I've ported these scripts to argparse (and pushed the result) after some rudimentary testing. Note that the yaml output of was already broken, it tries to split a string on '<' assigning the result to a 2-tuple resulting in a ValueError. May very well be that this works with the standard schema, though.

Let me know if we can close this (and open another issue for the yaml error? Unfortunately I don't know enough about the rudimentary parser implemented here to fix this.

Hi Ralf:

I have closed this and opened another issue for fixing the yaml parser: issue2551243.

I can't reproduce your error, but I'll have a new copy of the script checked in
in a few. Followup on the new issue.
