Hey #python users, @mcsinyx is creating a decentralized Python packages distribution, with pre-resolved package dependency much like a Linux distro repository. The project needs help with package declaration, currently for those listed in https://todo.sr.ht/~cnx/ipwhl/5
Any help is appreciated 🙏

Funny because that's what many people already called FB posts that.
It recently occurred to me, relatively unprompted, that many of the state management patterns in "modern" "react-ish" webdev are just re-implementations of dynamic scope – with the same advantages and disadvantages dynamic scope has had for the past ~60 years that it's been in use.
(Of course, after noticing this, I checked, and pointing out how not-new this pattern is… is itself not at all new: https://spin.atomicobject.com/2020/04/08/react-contexts-dynamic-scope/ We sure do love reinventing wheels!)

The current problem is that I don't know how to start dictd without systemd 😂

💌 I like email. There is no expectation that it is answered quickly, so I can check it once a day, and only on workdays. It's good both for short answers and long-form discussions, with one person or many. It's federated and at least partially decentralised. There's a client serving all kinds of needs, from phones to the command line.
