Can you speak a little more about how you'd see the workflow working
with this new library? It seems a bit complex to have a library that's
*copied* between Django and Jinja: I'd worry about patches getting
For context, this has happened a few times with the simplejson and
elementtree libraries in core Python: patches made to the upstream got
"lost" before merging into Python's stdlib, and patches made against
the stdlib didn't make it upstream. For a while there the json library
in the stdlib was ever so slightly different from the simplejson
library of supposedly the same version.
Do you have ideas about how we could avoid this problem?
(For the record, I wouldn't be opposed to having your proposed library
be an external dependency. At some point the Python packaging
ecosystem will be good enough that we can stop bundling, and I think
we're getting pretty close to that point. But understood if that's a
battle you don't want to fight :)
