PYTHON BTFO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FOREVER!!!!!!!!

Now that PEP 572 is done, I don't ever want to have to fight so hard for a
PEP and find that so many people despise my decisions.

I would like to remove myself entirely from the decision process. I'll
still be there for a while as an ordinary core dev, and I'll still be
available to mentor people -- possibly more available. But I'm basically
giving myself a permanent vacation from being BDFL, and you all will be on
your own.

After all that's eventually going to happen regardless -- there's still
that bus lurking around the corner, and I'm not getting younger... (I'll
spare you the list of medical issues.)

I am not going to appoint a successor.

So what are you all going to do? Create a democracy? Anarchy? A
dictatorship? A federation?

I'm not worried about the day to day decisions in the issue tracker or on
GitHub. Very rarely I get asked for an opinion, and usually it's not
actually important. So this can just be dealt with as it has always been.

The decisions that most matter are probably
- How are PEPs decided
- How are new core devs inducted

We may be able to write up processes for these things as PEPs (maybe those
PEPs will form a kind of constitution). But here's the catch. I'm going to
try and let you all (the current committers) figure it out for yourselves.

Note that there's still the CoC -- if you don't like that document your
only option might be to leave this group voluntarily. Perhaps there are
issues to decide like when should someone be kicked out (this could be
banning people from python-dev or python-ideas too, since those are also
covered by the CoC).

Finally. A reminder that the archives of this list are public (
https://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-committers/) although membership

I thought this thread would be good for discussing resurrection of older smartphones with newer Android versions. Older phones are still usable today with many new ROMs (most libre/open) and with kernel customizations. They also don't have some of the botnet that newer devices have.

I'm currently typing from a Galaxy S5 SM-G900FQ. I retired my trusty old I9300 (Galaxy S3) a few days ago, because it was getting really slow with Android 7.1, and the MicroSD slot and MicroUSB broke. I built my own Lineage build.

By the way, it's really a great time to own a klte. New ROMs with enhancements are popping up everyday, official LineageOS will start from next Tuesday, there is a camera mod on XDA that allows 720p@120fps slow motion or 1x speed, and many kernels for optimization (currently running SmartPack with zzmoove with its native hotplug).

I think this is similar to resurrecting old ThinkPads with Linux, albeit with a bit more botnet (baseband), so I thought it would be interesting to discuss.

What about you? Are you running a custom ROM? What device? How's the speed? My current device is blazing fast right now compared to TouchJizz.

Good luck with your backdoored, unmaintained botnet phone. Android might be bad, but at least we can amend some of the issues. Whereas you're intentionally using malicious software for the sake of contrarianism.

2) she gives so few fucks about it, that doesn't even bother about hiring normal social media writer, and not some kid who values trolling more than his job

So yes, she might not be semi-retarded pig, but people who take what she says serious are.

The only thing distinguishing us from them was our love of anime tiddies



They put in so much effort on Quora too. They write entire novels for the smallest questions, for free. Possibly to keep you from seeing the "by Pajrama Kajarhamesh" without scrolling.



I always avoid that website because of the street shitters. If they aren't writing a novel they're giving some retarded answer like

>I don't know why my fellows are suggestion you do [correct thing] I suggest you [retarded answer that has nothing to do with anything]

What is their obsession with calling everyone their fellows? It's like they're LARPing as doctors.

>you post something online, i.e. it is accessible on Internet on one of the ports search engine crawlers check, then do not expect it to be "private". If it is a public web page, it can be scraped and therefore it is not private

>Nobody is inclined to care about your fee-fees when transferring onesies and nullies over a network of computers

>t's a zero effort operation from bald ape's standpoint and can be repeated countless number of times until no need for such information is present.

I agree with that but the point still stands people who post things even in public spaces have automatically their copyright on it (except if there was a eula that said you authorized them to do X).

>You should not expose your data to people you don't trust at all

Why are you replying to this ? Obviously the anon you respond to is aware of that.



>I agree people can do whatever they want as long the copyright older does not legally complain.

Does that mean murder is fine because the victim can't complain afterwards? You forget that the State has a right to prosecute any crime regardless of the petitioner.

probably a cease&desist letter from (((them))).



Why would the Jews care if some furry christgags made a video about SJWs in tech? The mods are just asshurt because of the title pic.




/tech/ is fine and the activity isn't bad. Threads hanging around for a long time isn't an issue either. There are several boards I use here that are very active and have threads from several years ago in their catalogs because they don't make a new one every time a minor release is made to a Linux distro. Sounds like you're used to cuckchan/g/ and its low quality threads.

Plus, if you're so concerned about activity and the lack of new threads you could make new ones that are worth posting instead of complaining a furries shitty youtube video got anchored. Maybe if the OP took the time to post a webm instead of directly linking to some faggots channel this thread wouldn't have turned to shit.



I guess you'll never know how comfy is to use one of the smaller boards




>e-everything is fine

Sure it is. And you can blame the OP all you like, but the mods have let way worse shit stay unanchored.

This place has too much of the bad kind of autism, but if you're ok with that, enjoy having it as your little hole in the wall, I guess.
