Updaing packages: nix-comment-updater

I had an earlier version of this implemented in Haskell but was too hard to maintain
for many reasons.

So how does it work? You add

NIX_COMMENT_UPDATER_START { json }

NIX_COMMENT_UPDATER_END

And if an update implementation feels responsible by looking at json it will return a string which can contain newlines which will be indented appropriately.

Eg see git/github implementations. So they will add name = “name-revision”; version = “…”; and src =… tags between the comments.

More implementations can be added over time.
It’s dead simple and works.

Enjoy and provide feedback :slight_smile:
