Short work week. Gave me time to indulge in heavy yak shaving. At first, I tried to just make django-cast (the develop branch) work for newer Django and Wagtail versions. Then I realized I had to fix wagtail-srcset first and replaced poetry with flit while I'm at it. Then I got lost fixing some stuff in kptncook before I remembered that I have to also update django-indieweb and django-fileresponse to be able to finally fix django-cast and make it deployable on my staging system using the latest and greatest Django and Wagtail versions. Oh and then I fixed some bootstrap stuff in the commands.py of my Django startproject template. Maybe I'll manage to merge the develop branch of django-cast back into main soon after develop started to diverge back in 2019 iirc because I wanted to use Wagtail as a CMS. Looking forward to meet some hairy yaks on the way.

On the other hand, I don't buy the economic arguments in favor of the cloud: You just have to pay for what you use. You also have to pay for being able to use the cloud efficiently, you pay for stuff you forgot to turn off and last but not least you pay for not having competent IT people and living with grossly inefficient cloud solutions.
