I wanted to ask your opinion about the possibility to “flag” a package on Nixpkgs out of date. At the moment, an issue at GitHub has to be opened, a lot of information has to be filled in, and even the current version number and the desired new version number have to be stated.
From the perspective of a user, this is a lot of unnecessary boilerplate. It would be preferable to have a data base accessible with all available packages (on Nixpkgs master I guess), and a button “flag this package out of date”. Like this, packages cannot be flagged twice. The package maintainer(s) have to check the new version of the package anyways, and correspondingly update the Nix expression.
