I guess?
 
@tripleee For some reason my adding 2 watches appears to have broken CI, but the test it claims is failing, shouldn't have been affected.
 
yeah, and why should that fail? the link is misleading
 
I'm curious, too.
 
oh, it's the SO monetization feature for Amazon links, it's misleading but it's okay because they do that to Amazon links to get a small cut for referring a customer
 
9:27 AM
Just change the test case to True.
 
but it's meant to not trigger, we will get a lot of false positives for Amazon links if the special case is now broken
 
That's what the link is, but why did it start failing when I added those watches? The text doesn't match what I added.
 
I can't repro locally

@tripleee OK, will try Docker later.

9:52 AM
@Zoe You can inspect the CI logs if you want to. It's more comprehensive than testing here.
 
Zoe
I know, I'm trying to find out why it fails
 
the jobs where it fails have failed so that code is not in production, you can't hope to repro here because the code which runs here didn't fail that test
 
It's failing for "misleading link"

problem is, I can't repro on a fresh checkout of master either

meh, me too
I ran the pytest locally and... passed
@tripleee I have a wild guess about the failure. Makyen's watch is a red herring and is not the cause.
 
that much is clear because removing it didn't help at all
but sure, what are you thinking?
 
You notice package tld is updated to 0.8?
This is the only difference from previous builds on Travis.
 
Ugh, that again? I think that used to cause trouble earlier too
But Art locked it IIRC
 
No, it wasn't locked

Hi all! I have a small question about a python command
I'm not experienced to bear with me on this one :p
Err so
I have a function that uses the python command "yield"
I tried to print the values that i'd expect from the calculation using print but it says invalid syntax
The definition is
def jenkins_traub(coefficients, epsilon, max_iterations):
    """Find the roots of a polynomial using the Jenkins-Traub algorithm.
    Wrapper method for the Jenkins-Traub algorithm. Loops through the
    coefficients, finds a root, divides the coefficients by
    that smallest root to find a new set of coefficients, and then starts over.
    Returns a list of the roots.
    """
    # Remove leading coefficients equal to 0
    while len(coefficients) > 0 and coefficients[0] == 0:
        coefficients.pop(0)
As you can see it says yield at the bottom
 
Hi, @user55789 . Have you tried asking in the Python room?
 
10:41 AM
And I somehow can't use the regular "print jenkins_traub(...)"
 
Yes, with yield it acts like a generator, so you need to write print *jenkins_xxx(...)
 
@iBug Thanks for the tip, I have not but I need 20 rep to type there so I can't ask it
What does the star do?
 
The asterisk before the function call expands the generator.
Stack Overflow's main site is also a good place to ask.
 
Hmm It still says invalid syntax :p
But I'll try the main site yeah, cheers
 
I'm afraid I've forgot most of Python 2...
If you have from __future__ import print_function, then you can use print(*jen())
 
10:45 AM
No worries thanks for trying, I'll try stack overflo
Ah I think that's the one
This worked :D
 
You're welcome :)

not really that is indicative of a connection getting halted mid-action
SSL needs a specific length of a message in the communication. If it doesn't get that, it fails. Usually it's due to trying SSL on a non SSL port, or vice versa, or such.
