Subject Re: exporting activation arguments to the environment
Date Thu, 27 Jun 2019 17:25:20 GMT
BTW, circling back on "can it be done just using -p in current form": I still like the idea
- action configured params are different the user specified params (and we should only pass
them on init, not run)
- this is also a bigger convention change for action developers (read from env or context
instead of the single args object given to main)

But - *adding* the -e, instead of revising the meaning of -p does makes this a backwards compatible
change, so that's a good thing.

    Tyson is right in that we shouldn't let implementation concerns affect a
    proper design and sacrifcie the experience.
    So in line with his concerns, is there a desire to facilitate environment
    variables at all (user specified values, not system/context ones)?
    If so, then having thought about it some more, annotating every parameter
    could be done as suggested say with a -e vs a -p.
