@qyliss:fairydust.spaceAlyssa Rossthere, you can see conversation about what needs to be done for this round, and a link to Hydra to see what's failing, etc.17:31:37
@qyliss:fairydust.spaceAlyssa Rosswhat old workflow?17:31:50
@nickhu:matrix.orgNick HuMaybe this is not true, but I believe that people used to just merge mass-rebuilds directly into master?17:32:17
@qyliss:fairydust.spaceAlyssa RossI'm sure at some point they did!17:32:46
@qyliss:fairydust.spaceAlyssa Rossbut not in my time (since 2018)17:32:52
@lukegb:zxcvbnm.ninjalukegb (he/him)It's generally... frowned upon unless it's urgent17:33:16
@qyliss:fairydust.spaceAlyssa Rossyeah there is the occasional exception (like critical openssl vuln or something) 17:33:30
@nickhu:matrix.orgNick HuPerhaps it's really my own ignorance, but I have never merged anything into staging before, so I assumed it was a new-ish workflow (been around since 2016 roughly)17:34:27
@nickhu:matrix.orgNick HuThen again, I seldom touch mass-rebuild packages17:34:42
@lukegb:zxcvbnm.ninjalukegb (he/him)The nixpkgs doc section linked in the PR has a few words about staging/staging-next but not a whole lot17:34:53

@qyliss:fairydust.spaceAlyssa RossI've found a reference to staging-next in a comment line that was added in 201817:38:40
@qyliss:fairydust.spaceAlyssa Rossso it's certainly been around for a while17:38:47
@qyliss:fairydust.spaceAlyssa Rossand I imagine staging existed on its own before staging-next17:39:59
@qyliss:fairydust.spaceAlyssa Rossbut that's harder to grep for17:40:09
@qyliss:fairydust.spaceAlyssa Rossstaging apparently already existed in 201517:43:31
@qyliss:fairydust.spaceAlyssa Ross(not trying to prove a point or anything here -- I just found the archeological question interesting :))17:43:59

Me too! The earliest reference I can find is https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/commit/b4e5181dde01c6938825484f210120b54f1a7d2a

@qyliss:fairydust.spaceAlyssa Rossyeah that's what I found too17:46:32
@qyliss:fairydust.spaceAlyssa RossIn 2009 there was an svn branch called stdenv-updates, which I suppose was proto-staging17:48:44
@qyliss:fairydust.spaceAlyssa Rosspeople on nix-dev were complaining about it being used as a staging area, apparently it wasn't supposed to be for that17:49:16
@qyliss:fairydust.spaceAlyssa Rossaha, found the origin!17:50:15

@superherointj:matrix.orgsuperherointj joined the room.18:21:19
@vcunat:matrix.orgVladimír ČunátThat's from time when there were only a handful of active contributors (and also users, presumably).18:29:06

@sternenseemann:systemli.orgsterniis anyone aware of any reasons we may need to do a staging-next run in the coming time for 21.05? Seems quiet currently10:30:22
@sternenseemann:systemli.orgsterniI have some haskell changes with a small chance of breaking things lined up, so ideally there would be a staging-next run focused on that 10:31:14
@sternenseemann:systemli.orgsternisince usually the chance of haskell packages breaking in staging-next is very slim10:31:28
