It seems like a headline from the Onion1. But unfortunately it’s not.
Webpack-cli2 had a bug3 recently because it tried to display a message for donations on the terminal when using it. But that message was only displayed on Monday(because there were complaints about seeing the donation message every time you were running a build).
Then a bug was introduced into that code because it relies on
process.getuid which is not available on Windows, making the CLI crash but only on Windows and on Monday \(**)/.
