Re: actix-web maintainership crisis
I have two simple mantras which establish my philosophy here:
1. YOU are responsible for your dependencies.
2. Open source participants are volunteers and owe you nothing.
It was never Nikolay's job to vet actix-web for you, nor did it become his job when the library became popular, nor does invoking "security" change anything in the slightest. Your dependencies are your responsibility. Responding with vitrol, anger, or hate when failing to uphold this responsibility bites you in the ass is just being a jerk.
User entitlement is totally unjustified and will burn out maintainers faster than almost anything else. I don't stand for it. If any other maintainers out there are struggling with this, please send me an email: email@example.com. I'm sympathetic to your cause and I can likely lend some pertinent advice.

> We have computed the very first chosen-prefix collision for SHA-1. In a nutshell, this means a complete and practical break of the SHA-1 hash function, with dangerous practical implications if you are still using this hash function. To put it in another way: all attacks that are practical on MD5 are now also practical on SHA-1. Check our paper here for more details.
