Subject RE: Apache meetups in the coming week
Date Fri, 29 May 2015 15:40:01 GMT
Awesome, thanks Rich. I'll have a play over the weekend.

I shudder to think what our respective Python skills will produce. Hopefully someone here
clears up after us ;-)

It's now in svn, under 'tools'. PLEASE read the comments in the script
before blindly using the script. Copied below for ease of reference.

Also please note that this is literally the first thing I've ever
written in Python, so I'm sure that there are things that could be done
better.
