FFS, why isn’t this the first fact or question?

I don't know what's worse, the vagueness of the question or the fact that people want to answer it without any additional details.

Because the question isn't "Is python the right choice in this situation?", the question is "Should I override group consensus to make a subset of the team happy?"

The group made a decision. Someone (senior, but not leadership) disagrees. What do you do?

Well, I guess I would still want to know why the "senior" disagrees? Is it for a good reason? Is it a QOL thing for them personally?

I still don't know how you decide the question of "do I override the consensus" without addressing the technical issues at hand.
