    1. In the context of git, the word "master" is not used in the same way as "master/slave". I've never known about branches referred to as "slaves" or anything similar. On existing projects, consider the global effort to change from origin/master to origin/main. The cost of being different than git convention and every book, tutorial, and blog post. Is the cost of change and being different worth it? PS. My 3 projects were using your lib and got broken thanks to the renaming. PS. PS. I'm glad I never got a master's degree in college!

    1. If you'd like to read more about the game's arguments, click here. 

      I'm not familiar with this term "arguments" used like this. Isn't this more referring to the motivation for this game?

    1. However, those descriptors gave a bit too much flexibility/dynamism to the class shape in order to be efficiently optimizable.

      I think this:

      However, those descriptors gave a bit too much flexibility/dynamism to the class shape in order to be efficiently optimizable.

      means:

      However, because those descriptors were gave so much too much flexibility/dynamism to the class shape, it could not be be efficiently optimized.

      rather than:

      In order to be efficiently optimizable, those descriptors gave much flexibility/dynamism to the class shape.

      In other words that flexibility/dynamism hindered optimization; it wasn't for the purpose of optimization (as "in order to be" could be interpreted as).

      The "too much" wording also contributed to the confusion for me.

      But maybe just dropping "in order" would have been enough for me:

      However, those descriptors gave a bit too much flexibility/dynamism to the class shape to be efficiently optimizable. or However, those descriptors gave a bit too much flexibility/dynamism to the class shape for them to be efficiently optimizable.

    1. Svelte offers an immutable way — but it’s just a mask to hide “assignment”, because assignment triggers an update, but not immutability. So it’s enough to write todos=todos, after that Svelte triggers an update.

    1. of, relating to, or being a grammatical case or form expressing means or agency

      I really need an example of this!

      It seems unusual that they specifically mention "a grammatical case or form". I've never seen a definition before that is anything like this one.

      How is this different from definition 1?

    1. to bypass work

      What does "work" mean here? I think maybe they mean to bypass profiling?
