@evils:nixos.devevilssome suggested topics somewhat topical, if you haven't done an hour on this before: the release process maybe somewhat overkill unless you go into all the things affected by this, answering my question here https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/issues/9415#issuecomment-1820824736 ("What is the actual issue with libGL on non-NixOS?") (my interest is in providing a package i maintain via a Nix bundle, which doesn't work because of that)15:50:45

@evils:nixos.devevilsanother "i wouldn't mind having an expert spend an hour on my problem" https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/issues/255657 fetchZip unpacks the source, the source is exceeds the hydra limit, so even though the package that uses the source outputs something way below the limit, it can't be built on hydra maybe interesting to look into fetchFromGitHub -> fetchZip -> fetchurl -> maybe mirrors (software heritage foundation?)? also when to not build something on Hydra, or when to set up your own cache, or the prospects for P2P stores?16:10:06
@infinisil:matrix.orginfinisil evils: Great ideas! Can you open these as issues on https://github.com/tweag/nix-hour? 21:22:22

That's good. Have you had any thoughts about other subject matter experts? Or expanding the subjects, maybe taking a survey?
Perhaps hosted by someone on the other side of the earth?
Or are these for later when the current format is more stable.
For now I won't be doing that. It would take more time and mental capacity to organise that, which I currently lack. I'd appreciate others doing this though! Incidentally the developer dialogues are going on right now, which is kind of like that (though not as technical)
21:24:23
@infinisil:matrix.orginfinisil kadokusei10: Yeah if smaller issues come up I'd try to address a bunch of related ones together. 21:25:03
@infinisil:matrix.orginfinisil kadokusei10: While I can't guarantee Japan time, I have a pretty good idea how to make it work without being too straining :) 21:26:51
@infinisil:matrix.orginfinisil kadokusei10: Regarding recording, I don't think that would be okay, people have the right to not be recorded, and we need to be clear about that. Nobody can be everywhere all at once, there's always something missed, but that's fine because we're always exchanging information everywhere :) 21:28:49

Also I would like to help, but I'm still a novice.

@infinisil:matrix.orginfinisil mikecm: Whoops not sure what happened there, this should work: https://discourse.nixos.org/t/2023-nix-developer-dialogues-live-stream/35386 15:05:42
@mikecm:matrix.orgmikecmYes I have watched similar, but I don't think I'm alone in thinking that the nix hour format is better because of a number of reasons: less formal, more targeted, people watching can have their issues aired, I think it helps with learning.15:13:32
@infinisil:matrix.orginfinisil mikecm: Yeah it's not the same, but probably the closest to guest lectures there is right now :) 15:15:15

infinisil: Thanks for the reply!

I have a pretty good idea how to make it work without being too straining :)
Is that idea in a stage where you can share it?
Regarding not recording some stuff. I understand πŸ‘πŸΌ

@infinisil:matrix.orginfinisilBasic idea is: Every 4 weeks, pick a pseudo-random day and time slot to have the nix hour for the next 4 weeks. Pseudo-random because it's gonna be constrained by my and co-host Yuriy's availability :)22:40:27
@infinisil:matrix.orginfinisilSo every 4 weeks there would be an announcement like "The next 4 weeks, the Nix Hour will be on Tuesday 14:00" or "Thursday 18:00", ...22:41:53

@kadokusei10:matrix.orgkadokusei10I see! Sounds like an interesting idea!03:06:39

@infinisil:matrix.orginfinisil @room The next Nix hour is in 1 hour! As you might have seen, we're trying out something different today, where we decide the topic ahead of time. This time it's "Writing NixOS modules". If you have any questions about this topic, you can comment them in this issue. But also feel free to ask questions by voice/chat in the meeting, or if you just want to listen in, watch the livestream πŸ˜„ 16:03:15
@infinisil:matrix.orginfinisilStarting very soon!16:59:25
