Submitting arch-specific patches

I’ve been using nixpkgs on ppc64le and have accumulated a set of fixes (mostly trivial) for various unrelated packages. Would it reduce the burden on reviewers to issue a PR containing all of these changes, since they’re all the same topic? Or would it be preferable to fix each package in its own PR so that they can reviewed by their respective maintainers?


I think I’ll go ahead and open individual PRs for these. If anyone with ppc-specific knowledge comes along though, I’m happy to close them and issue a PR from my feature branch if preferred.

I would do individual PRs for the first few, nixpkgs has a lot of conventions for making packaging easier through git.
