  • Why the fuck are we templating YAML? (2019)

    In the case of GitHub Actions, it's made more painful by the lack of support for YAML anchors, which provide a bare minimum of composability.

    Even if you don’t pick Avalonia, their notes for Mac distribution look useful:

    A runner is where your action's jobs will be run. It can be a hosted virtual environment, or you can self-host a runner in your machine.

    If i understand this writing correctly (https://github.com/actions/runner/issues/904), running Windows containers in a windows-latest GH Actions host is not possible. While using a self-hosted runner on a Windows server might be an option, this is not what I want since it is a package repo for a well-known open source project, think of the package repo part as a mini-Conan. I wouldn't know who would want to host that. In the best case we would stay with just GH Actions to keep everything confined in one space :)
