python configparser

it took me quite a while to figure out why the code below

from ConfigParser import ConfigParser
conf = ConfigParser()

was working in one codebase but not working in another codebase.

Turns out the package renamed to lower case (probably backward compatibility is never a concern in python ecosystem) in python3.

so above code worked for python 2, need to change to below for python 3

from configparser import ConfigParser
conf = ConfigParser()

(wondering how python ecosystem would look like if there is a version 4/5 in future).
