zoom-us which is a proprietary software I have to use. It updates frequently lately and it seems that if you use an outdated version it may segfault unexpectedly. It has a
passthru.updateScript. Unfortunately, although individuals update it via normal PRs, these PRs can take a long time to be merge while the program becomes almost nonfunctional on that period.
I’ve always hoped, that the fact there’s a good
updateScript to this package, it will speed up the delivery of updates, but I’m not sure because I don’t know for example: Who runs
nix-shell maintainers/scripts/update.nix? Is there a cronjob for that? Do unfree programs are updated like that as well?
