Ask HN: What you automated using Python?

I am curious. Have you automated any task using Python? Please share link to Python scripts.

Fabric is one of my favourite libraries, period. It's a remote deployment and task scripting library that uses SSH: http://www.fabfile.org/ I use it to keep a small number of Debian VMs updated by simply defining a sudo('apt-get update && apt-get upgrade') task, then giving Fabric a list of hosts to run the command on, in parallel. There's infinite other uses, too. Very powerful.
