I wrote a Nix Haskell Development (2020) guide yesterday based on how I was using Nix. I got some great feedback that day and updated the post accordingly. However, some of the comments required a bit more time than I had yesterday, so I deferred that work until today.
The problem is, I cannot edit my post anymore.This means I have to put the updates as a separate reply, essentially reposing the whole Howto. This means the Howto becomes misleading since you have to read the comments below it to re-construct what you should actually be doing. To me the real benefit of Discourse over simply writing a wiki article is that its easy to receive feedback/ideas that I can then put in the original post.
Another example is my other Howto Troubleshooting fetch* commands (like fetchFromGitHub) which after a little discussion showed me that using
nix-prefetch-git is a much better way to prevent some of the confusion I was running into.
Is it possible to open Howto posts to be edited long after they have been posted?
