Hello Gary and everyone,
I've been looking through the commit log and I keep seeing PEP8. Then I was reading through some merge requests that were not implemented; more PEP8. Gary, you mentioned in a MR comment that there were a lot of PEP8 errors in the pinup script. I looked up PEP8 and see that it is a style guide for Python.
Since I don't know PEP8 really at all, I found a online compliance checker. It is Clockmaker is littered with (~80) errors. Is using an online checker recommend ? Is this one as good as any other? I could imagine that some are more accurate than others. 

I thought I would work on the clockmaker script regarding PEP8. That would be a first step to integrating the pinup functionality into clockmaker. It doesn't make much sense to me to have 2 scripts, with one being a superset of the other. My $dayjob has taught me that it is guaranteed such a situation will lead to non-conformance/out of sync issues. In fact, I just submitted a MR because the Pi 3B+ H/W is in pinup but not in clockmaker. 

Enjoy your weekend.
