Deduplicate human/JSON/XML in CLI commands · Issue #9377 · NixOS/nix · GitHub opened follow-up issue so we don’t get these types of bugs again
- Will hand out Nix repo admin to the whole team so @roberth can fix himself
Document <drvPath>^<outputName> syntax for installables by amjoseph-nixpkgs · Pull Request #9362 · NixOS/nix · GitHub
@Ericson2314: I wanted to do some things first, but now I admit it might be too much scope creep vs just doing after
@Ericson2314: Maybe I can just

The contents of the

Also wants to keep the illustration.
Dropped from the board, will let @fricklerhandwerk rework it

- We’re already using
std::filesystemin several places, will make stuff more coherent
@edolstra worried about the code churn, but can be mitigated by not having it in one go, but just a general direction
@Ericson2314 will write The Big Windows Plan
