I really can't remember doing that. I also can't find any reference in my
bash_history of editing a python file.

Why would I have done that? It just doesn't make sense. Did you try to 'svn
revert' the change and see what happens?

Ah. Eh. Ack. Please udate VmgumpConfig on the wiki to reflect that.

I would say that, given that

1) I didn't change any code after svn checkout (just went through bash
2) you and me are the only people with accounts on vmgump

It follows that

-> trunk needs to be changed to enable nagging in the presence of <nag/>

Except that you're indicating it was a local modification.

Which means in all likelyhood someone should be pointing a finger at me.
Sorry :-$
