The problem is not in the file/output. It's in the running of the script.
If Pagure on Dist-Git takes too long to reply, or is down, haproxy returns an 
HTML page with "this app is offline".

That is what's causing the failure:
simplejson.scanner.JSONDecodeError: Expecting value: line 2 column 1 (char 1)
error creating owner-alias file

Given that the script asks Pagure to page through a lot of projects everytime, 
the chance of any one of those requests failing gets quite high.
Thus, basically every run crashes some part through the run because a Pagure 
result took too long or was aborted by haproxy.
