Changing the behavior of Hydra generated channels

I sort of doubt much of anybody uses the feature, but if you do – I’m changing the nested package behavior for package sets like:

{  packageset.packagename = ... }

where they used to generate a fake channel with the attribute:

"packeset-packagename" = ....

it’ll now create a fake channel with the original nesting:

packeset.packagename = ....

The PR is here: Test the fake derivations channel, asserting nested packages are properly represented. by grahamc · Pull Request #893 · NixOS/hydra · GitHub and it includes a handful of tests. If you use this feature, would you comment below? I’m planning on merging it in 7 days or so.
