Etiquette for pinging a PR?

Hi everyone,

I’ve got a PR to update a package in nixpkgs. It looks like the CI passed all tests, and ofborg tagged the maintainers for review. However, I haven’t seen any attention from the maintainers so far.

I realize they may be busy, but given that I don’t even know how active these people are in the Nix community (are they core contributors? or just random people who signed up for maintaining this package?) I didn’t want to wait too long before asking what to do about this.

What’s the recommended etiquette for dealing with these situations?

Here’s the PR, in case that matters:



You can post it in PRs already reviewed and PRs ready for review _ .

I also think it is okay to ping the maintainers again after a week.
