Ok I made this change and the new britney has a traceback:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/var/lib/britney/", line 3283, in <module>
  File "/var/lib/britney/", line 347, in __init__
    self.dates = self.read_dates(self.options.testing)
  File "/var/lib/britney/", line 917, in read_dates
    for line in open(filename, encoding='ascii'):
FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory:

I had a brief look at the code and it appears that an empty file will
pacify it, so I've done this:

And it does appear to have "worked" (eg it stopped the traceback).
Please advise if this is correct or if I need to be doing something
more with this new Dates file.
