Notice that Executive.run_command() only throws a ScriptError exception if return_exit_code := False. It is good programming practice to limit the scope of a try-except to the minimum code that can raise an exception to help make it straightforward to debug the cause of an exception. In comment #25 I gave an example of one way we can write this code such that we limit the scope of the try-except block.
