I have yet to understand when the nixos branch updates… and why it doesn’t.
On nixos-18.09 we’re still at Linux 4.14.76, there has not been a new commit since October 17. Linux 4.14.78 was released October 20, 8 days ago. Is it supposed to be like this or is the machinery broken? I don’t see anyone talking about it, is this normal?
How can I tell myself what’s happening and why it doesn’t happen going forward? It’s far from the first time that it appears to me as though nixos is stuck, so I’d like to know what I need to know to be able to tell. When I look at Hydra I don’t understand it well enough to be able to tell why the current old commit is the current commit and not another, later commit.
