Just wanted to officially thank the community for the opportunity given to @tomberek and myself as the new release managers for the next two cycles. We are very grateful for the chance to give back to the NixOS community and push the state of the project that much further! We would also like to give special thanks to @jonringer in advance, since I’m sure he will be an instrumental guide for us.
With that, I’d like to remind everyone of the current release cycle schedule. Since we’ve got a few weeks til the major lifting begins, feel free to brainstorm any further ideas, improvements or even just comments or concerns in this thread.
I’m also considering opening an additional RFC, if necessary, to codify any additional release goals that may arise. For example, one big question I have personally is whether we want to start integrating flakes more during the next few cycles or whether we just leave everything in
legacyPackages as is.
Either way, we’ll be relying heavily on the collective expertise of the entire community to make these next few cycles smooth and successful, and as part of that, we’d like to make ourselves as available as possible. For this, we have recently created a dedicated release management room on the Matrix Space if you’d rather communicate in sync.
Most of all, thanks to everyone who helps to keep NixOS growing and progressing into one of the most awesome and useful distributions around!
