npm audit: broken by design  ↦

Dan Abramov cuts right to the chase:

As of today, npm audit is a stain on the entire npm ecosystem. The best time to fix it was before rolling it out as a default. The next best time to fix it is now.

He goes on to lay out how it works, why it’s broken, and what changes he’s hoping to see.
