I’m hoping to draw out an explicit/decisive discussion about what seems to have slowly become the de facto state of the Nix language support for Travis-CI: neglect.
For this first post, I’ve assumed there’s general agreement to avoid burying the solution under the justification. If you don’t agree with my assertion, or that it’s a problem, see the 2nd post for more.
How to address it
One of two things should probably happen (soon–while the current support roughly works):
- Make a decision to deprecate and eventually end community support on a version or time-based schedule.
- Find maintainers who have the time, energy, interest, and Nix-ecosystem knowledge to maintain the support at an acceptable level of quality.
