Here is another patch from Guido, found via
<URL: git://prometheus.amsuess.com/calypso-patches >.  He added this
comment to it in 2014:

  This can be useful when running automatic tests via e.g. autopkgtest
  where we want to have all files in a temporary directory.

diff --git a/calypso/config.py b/calypso/config.py
index dc17eec..59cbd85 100644
--- a/calypso/config.py
+++ b/calypso/config.py
@@ -72,6 +72,9 @@ for section, values in INITIAL_CONFIG.items():
+cfg = os.getenv("CALYPSO_CONFIG")
+if cfg:
+    _CONFIG_PARSER.read(cfg)
 # Wrap config module into ConfigParser instance
 sys.modules[__name__] = _CONFIG_PARSER

Happy hacking
Petter Reinholdtsen
