I don't like the idea of bots writing

@musicmatze can't bots contribute, too? 🤔 Why exclude them? 😉

@rugk because I don't like the idea of a project where the developers do not have the full control over the source.

And by "control" I mean _direct_ control. I know that bots can be controlled, too (or can they, given that AI is a strong field in the topic of automatic patch generation, too).

Sometimes it might seem valuable, for example in there's a bot that does trivial package updates. Still, a maintainer should have to look at the change, before it is merged (which is given in nixpkgs).

@musicmatze yeah, also have a bot that does chore stuff as updating screenshots when I merge a PR. That is quite nice.
