Over the coming one-two weeks, I’m going to investigate the bors configuration and render a GAP analysis with regard to @kevincox 's draft RFC effort for an always green hydra. I plan to resume my conclusions in a draft bors configuration PR to
Nixos/nixpkgs which I will link here.
Further Context (optional)
- RFC79 about stricter protected branch policy gathered momentum for implementing bors-like
- @zimbatm generously gave me a mentoring session and helped me articulate a path to getting things done (and not let die off the momentum)
- @ryantm and @kevincox together with me have tossed around the idea of staging a merge bot test in the wild in combination with r-ryantm update bot
- @7c6f434c has promised his support for it (I can’t find the comment right now, but I take this as a seriously encouraging signal )
