Hi @jbb - apologies for the terrible response time from my side… Indeed we initialize the Python view of namespaces lazily, but I currently don’t see why there’s an asymmetry between contents of a topmost and a nested namespace. I will (still) have to debug that. And that’s not going to happen this week or next because I still need to debug even more pressing issues (one: our test suite tells us master is broken, two: an experiment says ROOT is broken for them). I’ll try to get this handled still in September. Can you send an email to me (email@example.com) should you not hear back in two weeks?
Again, apologies for letting this drop despite your pings!
