Searching and installing old versions of Nix packages


Hey that’s pretty cool!
I like that approach.

There is some oddness that some packages in nixpkgs get to keep certain # of additional versions.
(Ruby, Gradle etc…)

Maybe making it easier to search for versions makes that less needed.

Here is an interesting idea!
Combine this with nix-index

It would be neat to search through indexes for rolling history.
