i mean it just makes sense that a getting-started kit for a webdev framework would transitively depend on... a multicast dns library

@hierarchon Thinking back “fondly” to that time I couldn’t get a framework’s starter project working because I was on the current version of Ubuntu.

On Ubuntu LTS, they package the LTS version of nodejs, sensibly enough. But I was on the current Ubuntu version, so I got the “current” nodejs version — which was at least a year behind at that point. And of course some third-order dependency required some feature that wasn’t supported 🤦🏻‍♀️

@vy @hierarchon hell is empty and the demons are here on the ECMAscript committee
