Bug Description


I'm fixing bug 414055 in Apport and I found that load() function at Credentials class don't raise an exception error when file doesn't exist. It should raise CredentialsFileError not only when version doesn't match, but also if file doesn't exists.

After that, I could do some try..except..finally to check if credentials file is corrupted or doesn't exist and ask user to generate a new one.

Thank you.

I think it also should raise CredentialsFileError at load() if consumer and access_token variables are broken for some reason (someone or some software could remove the consumer_key line from credentials file), like save() function currently does.

This will help to catch only one exception from load() function and not the ones from ConfigParser (MissingSectionHeaderError, NoOptionError).

This is possibly irrelevant with the keyring api changes?

I think this bug is still relevant. Credentials files are still used
when the keyring isn't available or doesn't have the creds.
