Writing a patch

We ask that all code submissions be flake8 clean. The easiest way to do that is to run tox before submitting code for review in Gerrit. It will run flake8 in the same manner as the automated test suite that will run on proposed patchsets.

Installing without

Then install the required python packages using pip:

$ sudo pip install python-jenkins
