I’m using a package which has been going through a lot of releases recently. @adisbladis is keeping the release up to date regularly on master (thank you!!). The only problem is I’m trying to stay on the stable nixpkgs channel to avoid recompiling the universe on a regular basis, which means staying far behind master. Which in turn means having to copy-paste overrides and workarounds from upstream to keep my project working with the latest packages.
Is there some way to contribute to packages advancing through to the stable channel faster?
(Please note this is about general suggestions, not specific to this package. And I’ll grudgingly accept an answer like “wait six months for the next stable release” if there’s nothing I can do.)
