Give the haters more to hate.
Popularity has its price. Tired of having to review pull requests, answer questions about your code, participate in Reddit discussions, all to support open source software that you’ve given to the world for free? Now you can send potential new users heading for the hills with a simple addition to the install_requires in your setup.py. Depending on this package will cause the word Zope to appear on the screen while your package is being installed, thus dramatically reducing the support burden for releasing open source software.
All you have to do is depend on zope.cooties and your project will obtain transitive dependencies on two different Zope packages chosen at random at install time, as well as any of their dependencies. Suddenly your users will be installing ZODB or the ZCA for no apparent reason just to use your code.
Try it today and give the haters more to hate.
