Discourse probably won’t let you post more than 3 messages in a row, so here’s an in-between to distract it.

Great to see consistent progress, awesome work!

Have you considered adding the team to Nix Community | Nix & NixOS together with a little mission statement along the lines of “Make Nixpkgs the one-stop-shop for geospatial software?” A small blurb about the team, what to do, how to join, and linking to resources as you did in the Discourse announcement would surely increase visibility.

Thank you very much, I hope there will be someone every 3 weeks.

Yes, but I had a problem with page layout breaking completely when our team was added. Maybe I should create a PR and ask people for help.

Notes about QGIS build failures

I must honestly say, that broken QGIS caught me by surprise. But we did our best to fix it and prevent it from happening again.

QGIS and QGIS-LTR build issues where addressed in python3Packages.sip: 6.8.0 -> 6.8.1 by imincik · Pull Request #281180 · NixOS/nixpkgs · GitHub and qgis-ltr: disable PDAL support by imincik · Pull Request #283718 · NixOS/nixpkgs · GitHub , but it will take some time until they reach master (sip upgrade must go through staging branch because it affects many packages).

EDIT: sip 6.8.1 is already merged in master - Merge pull request #281180 from NixOS/sip-6.8.1 · NixOS/nixpkgs@0d074a5 · GitHub

We also tried to make sure that qgis build is tested when sip is upgraded next time (python3Packages.sip: add qgis and qgis-ltr to passthru.tests by imincik · Pull Request #283714 · NixOS/nixpkgs · GitHub) .

If you are interested in improved qgis build quality, please have a look at qgis: enable tests by imincik · Pull Request #267919 · NixOS/nixpkgs · GitHub .
