    Thanks owlman75 for the illustration, as well as everyone who sends news on the digest tool . There are even spammers> <

    It's no secret that I collect news from the PythonWeekly and PyCoders mailing lists as well. This time it turned out to be a rather funny situation - we collected news so well that almost all the materials from the Friday newsletter were in our previous issue. PythonWeekly seems to be a week behind real news. In addition, announcements of all materials as they are added are available.
