I posted this because it’s a fascinating discussion of the technical details around removing the GIL (global interpreter lock), and I wanted to start a discussion about it here. Have you ever run into an issue involving the GIL? How did you get around it? Does this news mean anything to you? Or is it all Greek to you? Happy to discuss this on any level – this is exciting news for me.
