Caretaker maintainership in a nutshell

Caretaker Maintainership

(If this file is included in a project, you can find the list of current caretakers at the bottom.)

In a small classical open-source project, maintainers do a lot, and if maintainers don't have time to do a lot, usually the project stalls. Finding new maintainers is hard because few people actively want to take over all the responsibilities of a project. There must be a different way.

With Caretaker Maintainership, "Maintainers" become "Caretakers". Caretakers' only mandatory responsibility is to grant Releasers commit and publish access to the project.

Here's how my level implementing Portal in Baba is You works! If you haven't seen it, here's a video:

Baba is You is a game played with the arrow keys. How can Baba fire a portal gun and still have the ability to walk around? The answer: there's one more button the game allows, and that's the wait button - which makes baba stand still and allows a turn to pass in the game world. In this level, the wait button does more than wait - it fires the portal gun.

The skull crosses are a gadget to activate an arbitrary rule when the wait button is pressed. The following rules are used to set it up:

npm's proposal for supporting ES modules in node

ESM modules in node: npm edition

The proposal you’re about to read is not just a proposal. We have a working implementation of almost everything we discussed here. We encourage you to checkout and build our branch: our fork, with the relevant branch selected. Building and using the implementation will give you a better understanding of what using it as a developer is like.

Our implementation ended up differing from the proposal on some minor points. As our last action item before making a PR, we’re writing documentation on what we did. While I loathe pointing to tests in lieu of documentation, they will be helpful until we complete writing docs: the unit tests.

This repo also contains a bundled version of npm that has a new command, asset. You can read the documentation for and goals of that comma
