A stated design goal of builds.sr.ht is to never make you push weird commits just for the sake of the CI. That means using `git push -o skip-ci` instead of putting `[skip ci]` in your commit message, or letting you paste build manifests into the website to test them instead of pushing a bunch of test commits to see if your CI config works.

I hear the "you shouldn't have to learn how your engine works just to drive a car" argument often used to counter my insistence on learning git's internals to understand its externals.
My response: git is a tool for professionals. Racecar drivers should definitely understand how engines work. Amateur users of version control systems are using the undo and redo buttons in a Google Document. Git is a professional tool and if you're a professional then you have a professional obligation to learn your tools properly.
Will you refuse to install an application because of the programming language it was written with?
- Conditionally (Yes, but only if there is no binary available and I have to install the language's build tools)
- Other conditions: please specify
Boosts appreciated, because I find the "boosts appreciated" trick working for other people and I figured I'd try once
@fakefred i'd also consider performance as a condition there - i have nothing against running any language but when your framework is resource hungry as hell (this is 100% an electron and somewhat a php and java subtoot) it makes me want to not
I like writing foss software, rust, and Linux
