As suggested in bug 1045531, I am using a virtualenv to install a dependency.

        # Default configuration
        default_config = {
            'debug_build': False,
            # this will pip install it automajically when we call the create-virtualenv action
            'virtualenv_modules': ['google-api-python-client'],
            "find_links": [   # so mozharness knows where to look for the package
            # the path inside the work_dir ('build') of where we will install the env.
            # pretty sure it's the default and not needed.
            'virtual_env': 'venv',

However, this configuration is failing with:
10:08:46     INFO - Creating virtualenv None
10:08:46     INFO - Running command: ['virtualenv', '--no-site-packages', '--distribute', None] in /home/sylvestre/dev/mozilla/push-apk/mozharness/scripts/build

10:08:46    FATAL - TypeError: argument of type 'NoneType' is not iterable

I think we should add a check when the value is None (and probably gives an hint)

> 10:08:46     INFO - Creating virtualenv None

this seems wrong. grepping for 'Creating virtualenv ' in mozharness yields: http://mxr.mozilla.org/build/source/mozharness/mozharness/base/python.py#329

so it seems http://mxr.mozilla.org/build/source/mozharness/mozharness/base/python.py#93 is never getting reassigned from None.

this was wrong. query_virtaulenv_path expects c['virtualenv_path']. so s/virtual_env/virtualenv_path

it would be nice if mozharness had an api and config validation[1] so if you inherit a mixin (e.g. VirtualenvMixin), you were told what config items were needed and or missing at runtime

OK. Thanks.
FYI, I used your proposition in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1045531#c15

Seems to work fine now :)
