Vincent, with:

values =  ('status', 'pending') ('timeout', '120') ('status', 'pending')
('timeout', 60)

How do I comma separate it and put each each item in a dict?

>>> for key, value in items.iteritems():
...     for val in value:
...             md = {}
...             for q in val:
...                     md.update(q)
...                     print md
...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 5, in <module>
ValueError: dictionary update sequence element #0 has length 1; 2 is
required

Thank you
