The autobuild test system (on sn-devel-144) has detected an intermittent failing test in 
the current master tree.

The autobuild log of the failure is available here:

The failure seems to be in the "samba-nt4" suite, whose build logs are available here:
The top commit at the time of the failure was:

    heimdal-build: Avoid using python str.format()
    In python 2.6, the format fields need to be numbered explicitly.  This
    causes the build to fail on RHEL6/Centos6 with following error:
     File "/home/amitay/samba.git/source4/heimdal_build/wscript_build", line 87, in HEIMDAL_ASN1
        os.path.join(bld.path.abspath(), option_file)))
    ValueError: zero length field name in format
    To use str.format() in HEIMDAL_ASN1(),
       "--option-file='{}'"  needs to be   "--options-file='{0}'"
    Or this fix which avoids str.format() completely.
