Discogs Import Script Syntax Error

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f9ad8a939c0>

I am very new to Picard, still learning, and thought I’d learn first on compilations. One compilation I have is on vinyl, and nothing about it exists already in MusicBrainz, but Discogs has what looks like high-quality data. I found the script below. But when I paste it into the script editor window, it says “Unexpected character ’ ’ at position 8, line 45”. I see some discussion of it from 2016, but this version was evidently worked on this past June (2019).

It seems a little early in my career with Picard to try to figure it out on my own…

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I installed it this way: https://musicbrainz.org/doc/Picard_Linux_Install

Ubuntu 18.04 (32-bit)
Picard 1.4.2
PyQt 4.12.1
Qt 4.8.7
Mutagen 1.38

Thank you so much. I’d have spent a long time looking. First results are here and here.
