Following the docker prerelease tutorial, I see the following error. What am I possibly doing wrong?

$ env | grep PYTHONPATH
$ python -c "import sys; print(sys.path)"
['', '/opt/ros/indigo/lib/python2.7/dist-packages', '/usr/lib/python2.7', '/usr/lib/python2.7/plat-x86_64-linux-gnu', '/usr/lib/python2.7/lib-tk', '/usr/lib/python2.7/lib-old', '/usr/lib/python2.7/lib-dynload', '/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages', '/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages', '/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/FontTools', '/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/PILcompat', '/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/omniORB/COS', '/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gst-0.10', '/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gtk-2.0', '/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7', '/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ubuntu-sso-client', '/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/wx-2.8-gtk2-unicode']

$ locate empy -b

(BTW I had to sudo the script. PR is opened for that.)

Apparently the template evaluation still uses Python3 to run by default, so just make sure you have python3 and python3-empy installed. I'll update the wiki to include this workaround. Ultimately the correct solution would be to have those scripts use Python2 when the Python2 version of ros_buildfarm is installed.
