Hello Nixers, a reminder!
It may seem a short time since 18.03 “Impala” was released, but we’re approaching its successor already. According to the usual schedule, we will be forking 18.09 “Jellyfish” from master in about a month, then during September it will be stabilized, released around the end of that month, and maintained for the following half a year.
So, if you want some features in the next stable, now it’s the right time to polish them, so that they can make it in time. There’s a milestone on GitHub already, but I suppose it’s rather large now and will need to be cleaned up
How managers work was roughly described in the rfc and in a talk at the last NixCon, though I’ve been trying to shift much of the work to original authors of nixpkgs changes. It’s now me staying for 18.03 and 18.09, and Samuel starting with 18.09.
