What’s the current roadmap for creation of a platform-independent package-lock? Or explicit reasons that is not a goal? There was a lot of discussion in github issues in 2017 and 2018, but I don’t know how this was resolved. Thank you!
Locks from recent versions of npm should be platform independent. If you see a case where they aren’t, please file a bug!
