Approved by consensus:
It appears I made a mistake in the decision process that led to switching to Go. By engaging the discussion end of August and based on the lack of feedback I got over the weeks that followed, I assumed nobody was really interested and it was up to me.
And instead of presenting the rationale for the switch and waiting for a period of a few weeks to get a consensus, I declared the decision was final. Since it is a decision that impacts every developper involved in the project, that was not the way to do it. It was contrary to the principles of horizontality that are dear to me and fundamental to the project. I apologize for that mistake and ask for forgiveness to the people who felt wronged by my behavior.
I hereby re-open the decision and genuinely consider the option of keeping python for the implementation, with an open mind. The decision to switch to Go is very new and there is nothing blocking a revert. Nothing definitive happened in the past few weeks.
So… here we go If people have objections on this switch to Go, as explained in this blog post, please speak up! If there is no objection within two weeks, the decision will be to switch to Go.
