20.09 Call for Release Manager
Hello again, with 20.03 out the door, all shiny, development goes on almost instantly here in NixOS.
We will be needing a new release manager for 20.09/21.03 to release in co-operation with NixOS contributors, myself, and Eelco Dolstra. The release process in NixOS is in a time of great change, so this is the perfect moment for someone who really wants to leave their mark.
If you are interested, please get in contact with myself or @disassembler.

What to expect
Being a release manager in NixOS is not a solitary experience.
There is always two release managers, where each release manager serves
for two consecutive terms/releases. With each new release the previous team gets to
appoint a new manager. (what’s happening right now). This way, you always have the guidance of a release manager who has the experience of releasing NixOS before. See the RFC for more details. As mentioned, releasing NixOS is in a time of change, expect the ability to improve it within our means, if you’re up to it
Working with me personally, just know I don’t do anything half heartedly.
Expect it to be transformative.
I hope to hear from all of you.
