Nixpkgs-tde: a new overlay (pre-alpha)

Hello, Nixers (and possibly TDE enthusiasts lurking out there)!

I am now officially releasing my first Nixpkgs overlay: nixpkgs-tde!

For those who need a quick introduction: TDE, acronym for Trinity Desktop
, is a fork of KDE from 3.x series, for those who like the oldschool form of desktop. From the time I am writing it, they are in the R14.0.8 release.

My first step on this task is to open this thread on Discourse, containing my insights and progress, and also the questions and doubts eventually arising.

I am also talking with the guys from TDE via IRC in order to get some insights on this huge task. For now, my idea is to maintain this overlay syncronized with the most recent stable releases of both NixOS/Nixpkgs and TDE.

I am seriously newbie on this thing; excuse my mistakes and please help me improve my Nix programming skills.

Many thanks in advance!

P.S.: I want to use this thread as an all-in-one place regarding discussions of this overlay.


Great initiative!

This is effectively the first Desktop-flavored NixOS distribution outside of nixpkgs. Just like what Kubuntu is to Ubuntu.
