I just had a dreadful day dealing with PyPI and the migrations that are
happening. I'm posting this rant here in hopes of reaching the people who
can fix it (apologies if I'm in the wrong list), or at least offer an
explanation of the events that happened.

- Any and all feedback is welcome, but please be charitable.
- I'm angry *at* things, I hope not to offend anybody.
- I'm posting this rant here and not reddit or hn to ensure the discussion
stays between the interested parties and not the whole internet.

For formatting reasons the text is here:


Thank you for your attention
