So yesterday this hit the internet: A Git security release [LWN.net] and I wanted to upgrade.
I saw nixpkgs was quickly patched: [20.09] git: 2.29.2 -> 2.29.3 (CVE-2021-21300) by primeos · Pull Request #115600 · NixOS/nixpkgs · GitHub
The PR was targeted at a branch called
NixOS:staging-20.09, and I read this thread and the linked RFC talking about staging branches.
A friend pointed me to https://status.nixos.org/ to see when channels got updated, and it says they were updated after the PR got merged, but
git is still unpatched in the
nixpkgs-20.09-darwin branch, for instance.
I don’t know how to get a sense of when I can expect to see the git upgrade PR hit, say,
Is it possible to know when it’ll happen? Like, does it get integrated with some predefined frequency? Or is it “when it’s green”? Where can I watch for when it happens/has happened?
