Are resource leaks unavoidable for canceled builds?

Workflows/Jobs/etc… are stateful processes that can have any number of open resources.

These resources need to be closed whenever the job/workflow that contains it is closed, no matter what the circumstances, and especially on cancellation. There are a number of open tickets on this.

None of which has any response. What’s the status?

Sounds like a good hook to have. Have a look at circleci.com/ideas to see if it has been proposed already - and if not, please do add an idea. The forum does not automatically funnel ideas into the pot, as far as I know.
