@TheMatten A while ago you were asking about storing secrets in Nix configuration (if using Flakes, this would go in Git repo). Have you managed figure out a solution? This reddit threads mentions password-store, and there is another trick based on git-crypt.


Oh, that's cool - though one question is whether publicly stored (even if encrypted) data don't create bigger risk in long term


(I mean, in a sense that compared e.g. to communication, it's going to be stored and archived, publicly and in easy to locate way)
