This is my understanding too. I believe part of the point of a 'wiki', back
when the idea was first created was to allow for quick, direct edits to the
page. By that definition, man.sr.ht doesn't meet the definition, but
GitHub's wiki pages do.

Re: Badges interface for projects a month ago

I feel like that would add more coupling between git.sr.ht and
builds.sr.ht than isn't strictly necessary for this functionality. I'm
personally happy with the existing method, even though it does present
some minor annoyances when rehosting projects on other forges.

This is probably the easiest way to handle it. You don't have to do
anything special, just delete the last part of the public key when you
paste it into meta.sr.ht.

As a zsh user, I think just escaping the ^ would be sufficient.
That being said, according to RFC 3986 (https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986#section-3.3)

Try adding `export` in front of the ENV.

I'm not sure exactly what you're doing, but the cases where I've
had issues connecting to the internet from within containers,
it was a botched install (missing iptables rules) or the
ipv4/ipv6 forwarding config not set on the host.

How about a cli utility for interfacing with paste.sr.ht?

Could it be an option configured by the list owner?

I don't see a mechanism in the manifests for setting constraints
on when a task should be run. This is a feature on other build
servers that I've used and it's something I think would be useful
here as well. As others have said, you can probably add logic
into your script that accomplishes the same goal, but you lose
some visibility into what each task is really doing by putting
conditional branches into the task.
