How about posting "power dynamics in Python core and their detrimental influence on free software development" puzzles?
Python was chosen probably because the ML community uses Python almost all the time, and because its standard library and language constructs allow for concision, which would (presumably) allow ML models to focus on semantics as opposed to syntax.
On a very high level, everything is steered by representatives of large corporations, who are using the usual "community" tactics to gain power. The people in power do very little in terms of coding or having original ideas.
Discussion on PSF infrastructure is stifled, cautious and controlled. The atmosphere that existed up to around 2015-2019 has been ruined. Non-corporate developers have been weeded out and their significant contributions are now governed by corporate representatives, whose corporations associate themselves with the substantial work of others and slowly take credit for it.
Good? Python 3 stewardship has been absolutely abysmal for a long time. Maybe we'll even get major additions that aren't completely overshadowed by third party reimplementations.
Hypothetically, if someone like Anders Hejlsberg were to be roped in for writing a fast JIT, I'd think twice if I were him. Credit will go to the PSF and the known figures.
(Not to mention that he had better brush up on Critical Race Theory.)
