In 1492 the Jews were expelled from Spain and 4 years later also from Portugal. Many of those Jews settled in the Ottoman Empire and kept talking and changing their language. This is what created the language we call 'Judeo-Espanyol' or in its modern name 'Ladino'. For 500 years these people kept speaking and improving their language which is now a mix of medieval Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan, Turkish, Greek, Italian, Hebrew, Arabic, and probably a few other languages. These Jews are usually referred to as the 'Sephardic' Jews because 'Sepharad' means Spain in Hebrew. It was originally written using old Hebrew letters called Rashi and Solitreo, but in the last 100 years or so it was switched to Latin letters.
Unfortunately due to various reasons (The modernization of Turkey by Atatürk, the Holocaust, emigration to USA, Israel and elsewhere) the majority of remaining Ladino speakers switched to the local language and today there are only a few ten thousands of native Ladino speakers, most of them above 60.
I know Python is not your cup of tea, but the whole project might be interesting to some of you and might take a look at it. I recorded a series of videos in English about the site and how to contribute to it.
Enjoy your week!

First release of SPVM::File::Temp and SPVM::File::Find
SPVM (Static Perl Virtual Machine) is a perl-ish static typed programing language. SPVM provides fast calculation, fast array operations, easy C/C++ binding, and creating executable files.
Assert Your Environment
When container image gets passed around, the information about the required env settings will certainly get lost. Here is something of a solution to that: How to ensure you have the environment variables and values you need?
Data::Resolver base class for resolver
I see TDD as an ideal that you can rarely attain. In green-field projects I rarely know how things should work so my test-writing lags behind the code-writing. However usually after 'some' development I start to feel the lack of tests and then my focus changes.

Template fragments with Mojolicious
It is about adding template fragment functionality to Mojolicious, for use with htmx.
Ordering Your Tests
On one hand I think having the tests ordered can be a good idea, but on the other hand we will also want to make sure that the success of the tests does not depend on their order and that they can also be executed in parallel. So I am not really in favor of specifying the order of the test.
