My underlying problem: Package B requires package A; but the versions of A and B must be kept lock step - if I’m using v1.2.3 of B, I must use v1.2.3 of A. Can I specify that in B’s setup.cfg without duplicating the version number in both version & install_requires?

Python folks: Is there a way to use extended interpolation in setup.cfg? I can use `%(key)s` to refer to a key/value in the same section, but can’t use that syntax to refer to other sections.

Specifically, I want to refer to ${metadata.version}.

People who think neural networks don't behave like humans has never taken a toddler to a zoo. They're a classifier with only the classes of monkey banana, doggie, birbie and fishie.

PS: Spoon theory fans, yes, totally similar. But spoon theory is generally meant for chronic illness/pain. So spoons and post it notes aren’t the same but some people are managing both!

PPS: Check out fork theory if you haven’t seen it! I love it.

Pythonistas prefer PyCons with perks. ☕️

Perchance, persistence will persuade you to provide patronage?

The evidence suggests this can be safely expanded to “English-speaking people”, not just the English themselves.

My boss is going to Texas next week.
Him "You want me to bring anything back for you?"
Me "A longhorn steer"
Him "I don't think I can take that on the plane"
Me (sudden inspiration) "Kill it 1st. You're allowed one carrion"

She’s junior, but she has remote work experience; knows Python and Java (and a little C#); looking for a backend-focused position.

She’s got great communication skills, and *amazing* tech skills - she made 100x speed optimizations to VOC in her GSoC project.

I can’t undersell how *amazing* she was as a GSoC student. *Please* tell me y’all have a gig for her.

Holy cheeses - I’m excited about the sponsorship thing, but *this* is *HUGE*. This has been one of the biggest impediments to using GitHub Issues for any moderately sized open source project since the inception of GitHub.
