We get a lot of posts in the “Core development” category that really belong in “Users”. As I was manually moving the latest, it occurred to me that it’s actually a pretty reasonable mistake, since the author was probably thinking of what they’re doing as “development”. From the core team’s perspective they’re a user, but from their perspective they’re a developer, and their users are someone else again.
Maybe we should rename the categories to something that makes sense even if you’re not already immersed in the core team’s perspectives :-). Like:
- Users → Writing Python programs
- Ideas → Changing the Python language
- Core development → Maintaining the Python standard library and interpreter
