I have been looking at nixpkgs-channels to see where the unstable branch is (12 days old as of now). I would like to help fix failed builds of python packages. How do you find the failed builds?
I am aware of ryantm auto update [Ongoing] Latest nixpkgs-update/r-ryantm log · Issue #62 · ryantm/nixpkgs-update · GitHub but that only covers failed upgrades.
I have looked at hydra nixpkgs staging and clicked on the failed builds. However, when I build them locally they seem to build fine. For example
A nice overview of the status of the channels is given by:
When clicking on a channel, you get the latest release. There, you find a link to the corresponding Hydra evaluation. At the top of the page it says Jobset. Click on it, and then Overview, and you’ll see all the evaluations that are done for the initially chosen channel.
The nixpkgs:staging job corresponds to the
staging branch. It’s not ran that often.
Exactly what I was looking for thank you!
By the way, if you want to help out with fixing Python packages, check the
python-unstable branch and Hydra job
It’s based off
staging and contains a large amount of changes. Awhile ago you moved expressions into
python-modules. Many of those need to be updated. See Python package set major updates by FRidh · Pull Request #49741 · NixOS/nixpkgs · GitHub
I would enjoy helping out with fixing python packages. I am assuming that all of the packages that need to be fixed are red under success (currently 619)?
