comment Should I store log files in version control
The answer to such question depends on the goal and the usage on the long run of such information. I think having too much information stored is like having no information at all, it is not useful at all.

@Steven Jeuris: I did not say I was against. I just said that in some cases, I still have to do additional work. Out of curiosity, on Eclipse if you have 10 version of the class "Email" (using the shortcuts keys), do you know a quick way to access your file without browsing the list of namespaces ?

comment How can I learn to effectively write Pythonic code?
I think your question can be extended to any programming language. There is always a recommended way of programming which might be accurate in a large number of cases and also to improve revision, readability and maintenance. I think also challenging those recommendations can make a language evolve and advance...
