GO / NO-GO Meeting: NixOS 20.09 Nightingale

I’m ceratinly not someone “interested” in darwin, but there’s no success and thus no channel version so far: https://hydra.nixos.org/job/nixpkgs/nixpkgs-20.09-darwin/darwin-tested#tabs-constituents

It kinda confuses me that there’s darwin included in a release of the NixOS?
Like 20.09 is a version for NixOS. So I’m not sure, have we ever blocked on darwin issues?

I opened an issue on GitHub with the cause https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/issues/99108

Is it because MS is rollling in cash that you’re not working or is it because you’re not working that MS is rolling in cash?

Just kidding , I know you do unbelievable amount of volunteer work for Nix. :slight_smile:

I’m essentially doing the meeting at lunch. :slight_smile:

And as long as I’m meeting productivity expectations, my team doesn’t mind shifting around my hours a bit. :slight_smile:


No I sincerely appreciate you doing so much for nix, I was joking and (having spent time at at MS) I know they are very accomodating.


gcal invite for next week on Oct 9th

OMG, totally forgot to get notes or a youtube upload. Sorry to anyone who was trying to follow this.

I did it pretty “quickly”, but here are the notes for GO / NO-GO Meeting Fri Oct 9, 2020: https://gist.github.com/worldofpeace/edf0d1399884336c19e777ff06a3fa2e
(this is hackmd export so it’s not perfect)

We decided 20.09 is a NO-GO and to meet again at a later. And NixCon complicates this as our usual meeting date is on Friday (the same day as NixCon).


Just found this: https://github.com/orgs/NixOS/projects/4 which seems to be keeping track of the different things blocking 20.09, with links to the issues.

yeah, that’s linked in the meeting notes

Outcome of today’s meeting:

  • No go
    • still have a few scenarios which need addressing but shouldn’t be overly difficult
    • will sync again early next week (monday?) @worldofpeace @garbas @jonringer

What’s the current status? Is there another go/no-go meeting scheduled? Asking because can’t wait :slight_smile:

There wasn’t one last week, because of nixcon (which was great btw).

The last “blocking issue with no defined timeline” was closed with https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/pull/101078

@worldofpeace, @garbas and I are just finishing up some “polishing” tasks. The remaining tasks can be viewed here: https://github.com/orgs/NixOS/projects/4

As long as everything goes to plan, we should see the release occur on monday, 2020-10-26


Me and @jonringer confirmed today that we just have polishing tasks at https://github.com/orgs/NixOS/projects/4, I’m about to re-pr the fix for the gnome logout button. Once that one is merged we’ll be on an official GO. Currently we’re still planning to release on monday 2020-10-26


GOne: NixOS 20.09 Release!
