Subscribe to issue/PR labels on Github


Recently we had a discussion on the Haskell matrix channel about subscribing to Haskell-related issues/PRs on the Nixpkgs repository. We noticed that on GitHub it is not easily possible to get notified when a certain label is used.

For reference, see

The community post mentions a GitHub action that notifies people when a specific label is assigned, but the code is outdated and there are issues about possible incompatibilities. Further, it requires the action to be from the respective repository (Nixpkgs in this case).

We thought that this question may have been discussed already in other communities of the Nix project. Do you know of any solutions? Would you like to setup an action to allow such specific subscriptions? Maybe there are other solutions that we are not aware of — we would be happy to hear about them!
