Where to submit nixpkgs patch?

The documentation links to https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/nix-devel, which is dead. Is there an official way to submit patches which is not tied to GitHub specifically? Would it be acceptable to put a diff in an issue, for example? Or linking to a repository on another server?

Is there some particular reason you don’t want to submit a GitHub PR?

You’re not the first person to ask. I can’t recall exactly but I thought there was a sub forum or thread on discourse here to accept patches.

Just go ahead and post and someone here can create a PR on your behalf with your work.

Thanks for choosing to contribute to nixpkgs!

I’ll make a PR to change that ancient google groups link
