simpler alternative to celery
Ask Fedora doesn't use celery and sends mails sync now. I requested Fedora infrastructure to enable it and there is some reluctance
abadger1999> mether: yeah -- someone could look into programming much simpler async email sending (if that's the bottleneck) -- it's probably preferable as it's trading one-time programmer cost (assuming that it's acceptable upstream) for ongoing sysadmin maintenance burden.
<abadger1999> mether: I haven't looked at the code -- I just know that implementing a celery infrastructure for one isolated feature isn't a good trade for us.
<abadger1999> especially when there are other means to do it in the general case.
