My latest was SaltStack on centos 6 obsoleting some python-2.6 rpms or
other and automagically replacing it with python-2.7 versions. The
other guy here had his virtualenv pull in a wrong package on the deploy
host, and took a while to figure out and find a workaround.

I mostly managed to suppress the memories of trying to upgrade
openstack from nova to havana (or whatever they were called).
