You mean you added "ast.literal_eval()" without testing it?

Kevin, that's not the first time I ask,
who is testing this telemetry stuff?
I have the bad feeling this is a toy,
and you send random untested patches for it.
How I can know this patch is seriously tested enough
before merging it at the last minute in 19.08?
