Another little piece of drama in the open-source world.

So there is this developer, who contributes to the Lerna project.

And what he does is he goes to the repo of Palantir, which uses Lerna, and creates several issues telling them to stop using the project, because they did some contract work for the current government, and the Trump’s government is evil, don't you know, and that makes them racist, and he does not want racists to use his tools.

(examples 1, 2, 3)

Also, he modifies Lerna’s licence, explicitly saying that he forbids specific companies to use it, because they collaborated with the US ICE.

Eventually someone opens an issue in Lerna‘s repo to say what the fuck, get rid of the guy already.

Which, to my surprise, it seems that they did. I thought virtue signalling makes one immune these days.
