Community, I realized that there are libraries that do not follow the standard PEP8, in order to start to contribute, I am providing the OS patch.

I do not know if has community interest in the corrections (PEP8).

thank you

Thanks for your contribution, but we don't usually apply this kind of refactoring unless we are already making changes to the a specific part of the code.  The reason is that even if they are trivial changes, there's an (admittedly small) chance of introducing bugs, and it makes the output of "hg annotate" more difficult to follow.
Unless someone disagrees I think this can be closed as won't fix.

That is indeed our standard policy.  And yes, thank you for trying, Raninho.  A good way to make an initial contribution is to look for modules that don't yet have full test coverage (there are a lot) and add tests.  The devguide ( contains information about how to go about this task.
