Dependency Risk and Funding
From the creator of Flask: “I have a love/hate relationship with dependencies. I wrote about this extensively on this blog. […] Somehow very unsurprisingly nothing has actually improved in that regard in the last 5 years. In fact, I think the problem has become significantly worse. Where a few years back the main fear here was high profile developers being targeted, the dependency discussion is now overlapped and conflated with discussions about funding and sustainability.”
