The Nixpkgs Architecture Team (NAT) is there to solve architectural nixpkgs issues that are too big in scope for any single person to undertake. There are regular 30 minute meetings every Wednesday (currently 13:30 to 14:00 UTC) in Jitsi Meet, open for anybody to join, recorded and live-streamed to YouTube, meeting notes are committed to a repository and added as a reply here.
The agenda for the NAT is generally created from discussions in the past week, mostly on Matrix, but you’re also free and encouraged to suggest additional topics by replying to this thread.
With @Growpotkin joining the team and winter time taking over, we should find a new meeting time that works for all the members.
This RFC draft makes most attribute definitions in
pkgs/top-level/all-packages.nix be auto-generated from a single flat (or prefixed) directory instead, where the subdirectory corresponds to the attribute name. The ad-hoc category-based structure of packages will be removed.
