i took it as meaning the customer is a government entity and can't offer a bounty because that's not how government contracts work

ofc that doesn't preclude the contractor from paying the bounty

perhaps people should use libraries with single ansi colors (1.1 million weekly downloads)

i feel like the pathological case of dependency management for node is really driven by Problem 3 aka using open source as a resume.

"Why yes I have many npm libraries, each with several million downloads each" [each one is a one-liner]

this is definitely a pathological case. there's a middle ground imo. i have open source poo poo that i put on my resume, and one of my projects was a reason i got my current job, but poo poo, i'd feel like an rear end in a top hat showing someone my npm package that imports a single ansi color. wtf

what I mean is that the 'ansi-red' package and left-pad and all the others are predictable outcomes of someone whose career is incentivized to have popular open source projects

cobra farms but for lovely single-liner js packages

i don't get the cobra farms reference but i don't think i disagree with you either

if "npm package with a zillion downloads" looks good on a resume to anyone at all, there are people who will optimize for it

i think there was a similar issue with a few gun buyback programs, where people got paid for bringing guns made of wood and duct tape
