Who do I contact to review nixpkgs PRs without maintainers?

This is the first time I created a pull request for a package that doesn’t have any maintainers listed:


I’m just wondering if there’s anything else I have to do, or if there’s an automatic process that ensures that somebody eventually will have a look at it.

I’m not complaining at all. This is a pretty small, relatively unknown package. I’m just interested in what the proper procedure is.

You can take a look at the git blame history to figure out who recently worked on a given package, take a look on GitHub to see who merged the PR.

You can also post it in this thread: PRs ready for review _ or on Matrix if nobody seem to review it after a while.

Thank you, that’s very helpful. Oh, and I see that you just merged it as well.

About your suggestion regarding adding myself as a maintainer: I like the tool and follow its development, but I’m a total newbie and have no idea what I’m doing. Smooth updates like this are super doable, but I’m not confident in my ability to fix any more complex issues.
