"but we should be ready to implement the old behavior"
github.com/golang/go/issues/49
If there is a bug in code that is revealed in a newer version of the compiler, why should it be the burden of the compiler to support the old behavior as well as the burden of every future developer to decipher the (non-)utility of cryptic flags that support undesirable behavior. If the library is not being maintained, fork it fix it and move on.

@inhji @ru @aral @jle

Both @codeberg and @hostea should be able to provide insights on this. Codeberg offers #Woodpecker based CI (open fork of drone.io).

#Hostea may be thinking something similar. Might ask @dachary or @realaravinth

This is a really exciting thread. We escaped from github last year to a friend's hosted gitlab, but will move again if a real federated git environment emerges.

So thanks for all the thoughts!

#ObservabilityEngineering

Observability is critical for building, changing, and understanding the software that powers complex modern systems. Teams that adopt observability are much better equipped to ship code swiftly and confidently, identify outliers and aberrant behaviors, and understand the experience of each and every user. This practical book explains the value of observable systems and shows you how to practice observability-driven development.

for people who don't know me yet, here's the shortest summary possible:

i began life as a socially inept computer geek from North Norway, but then i flipped 180 degrees and i had to face the music, and i've been growing stronger ever since.

i thought i was crazy, but i'd just discovered how to hack life. i learned what's called social skills or emotional intelligence, and a little bit about fitness, and i feel happier now.

ask me to explain assembly code or LISP or the OSI stack and i can do that.

but i now also understand how the rest of the world operates. i even understand my cat better. it's been a wild ride.

and i work a lot more efficiently now.
