having automated just about everything we can in our deployment pipeline and making tons of mistakes along the way, I really dig this idea of bringing type safety and other programming paradigms to GitHub Actions

@ssoper nice. I think there is broad agreement that YAML is not an ideal robust way to configure deployment/infra, so it'd be nice if something else gets broader adoption

@CodingItWrong yea and as programmers we tend to approach stuff like this with object inheritance in mind so we try to abstract away the common parts and before you know it you have 5 diff yaml files but without the benefits of a compiler to keep it all straight. would love to see GitHub help support efforts like this by introducing some sort of syncing API.
