I was wondering how packages are generally updated in nixpkgs.
Since most of them are just calls to
fetchFromGit it would be relatively easy to have a mechanism that automatically creates a pull request whenever a new release is tagged.
I do a lot of scala coding and the community there has developed a github bot which automatically updates libraries in most major open source libraries. GitHub - scala-steward-org/scala-steward: A bot that helps you keep your Scala projects up-to-date
In a library I maintain it has been combined with a bot that automatically merges the PR if there are no conflicts and all tests have passed.
Is there such a process in the nix ecosystem?
