Subject [libcloud] [jira] Created: (LIBCLOUD-1) Errors in XML serialization

Errors in XML serialization

                 Key: LIBCLOUD-1
             Project: Libcloud
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Jeremy Orem


Errors in the system can turn into XML serialization errors. The one I'm encountering now
(which I haven't quite tracked down) is a name attribute with a value of None. ET constructs
the nodes fine, but when you call ET.tostring() it gives a nasty exception, like:

  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/xml/etree/", line 777, in _raise_serialization_error
    "cannot serialize %r (type %s)" % (text, type(text).__name__)
TypeError: cannot serialize None (type NoneType)

That's not very helpful. Guarding ET.tostring with some debugging code for exceptions would
be handy.
