Before you listen to any Kero Kero Bonito song you have to listen to the Bonito Jingle. It's just the law

Mozilla calls Medium a friend in their anti-establishment [1], and I’m reminded how Medium’s first party tracking is extremely user hostile [2].

“If you have uBlock or similar, it appears medium logs all analytics pings into HTML5 LocalStorage and will keep retrying to send them (and apparently periodically change domains and subdomains to try and send them). I had tens of thousands of entries in localStorage.”

Software upgrade -- 

This seems especially apparent when trying to fix these dependency issues without uninstalling. Some dependencies have to be updated before others. Hypothetically this could be fixed at the package manager level. Afaik however there are no source-install via official repos, and package managers shouldn't have to know the details of a package to install by source. That's literally handled by the scripts of the package itself

To be fair this is probably entirely because I'm trying to use it through the AUR. Ocaml does seem to have its own package manager, and that probably works fine. So considering, this is likely specific to *AUR* Ocaml packages, where maintainers aren't necessarily working in tandem.

Software upgrade -- 

When your recommended upgrade path is to uninstall the package and all dependencies and reinstall, your fundamental architecture is broken.

This isn't just with major updates or breaking changes. This seems to happen with every dependency BUGFIX update.

Now there are ocaml packages with exact version dependencies between AUR and official repos so it won't even let my system update wonderful
