Assigned to @edolstra to investigate stabilising cgroups as a principled solution

`inherit` duplicates evaluation work · Issue #9149 · NixOS/nix · GitHub

Open for contributions

libstore: change `max-jobs` default to `auto` by Enzime · Pull Request #9039 · NixOS/nix · GitHub

Good to go on the principle, assigned to @roberth for another review



  • Shouldn’t be a blocker for stabilizing fetchTree
  • The tests are great and should be incorporated. The rest is very likely conflicting with the libgit rewrite.


Morally already approved, except for the fact that it had to be discussed with the Nixpkgs Architecture Team. Now kinda approved on the Nixpkgs side too. So, good to merge after code review. Assigned to @roberth.

docker: publish images to ghcr.io by baloo · Pull Request #8066 · NixOS/nix · GitHub

Merged, but needs a follow-up to also push release tags via the release script.

fetchTree cleanup by edolstra · Pull Request #9061 · NixOS/nix · GitHub

Good to merge once CI is green.
