Manu: Ah don't worry about it, it would be hard finding this without knowing about it ;). I encourage leaving a 👍️ for that issue
Will do. Thanks! :)

For #7380 - is this snippet relevant?

https://nixos.org/manual/nix/stable/command-ref/conf-file.html#conf-system-features

yes but for possible values you need to search a bit through nixpkgs and/or the stuff I wrote on the issue because it is technically free text

fricklerhandwerk: Sorry if this is not important. I just found the announcement of the documentation team on Discourse. It has some links to the meeting notes, but not the latest ones (>#13)

Not sure if you want to keep it up-to-date.

Luc Perkins: is now running the team, and he can't edit my Discourse post. I suggested that he makes a separate announcement where he can link to individual meeting notes. But that takes time, people are busy. :)

@b:chreekat.netchreekatDoes anyone have a good idea how to observe the effect of switching to markdown? NixOS did switch, right? 10:59:01
@b:chreekat.netchreekat Ah, it doesn't really matter. I was concern-sniped by https://github.com/ghc-proposals/ghc-proposals/issues/560 , but I'm better off just ignoring it 11:05:49

we are switching and not done yet
12:32:29
@sandro:supersandro.deSandro 🐧from my perspective people are more often writing documentation because docbook was such a hurdle 12:33:17
@raboof:matrix.orgraboofdid we decide yet between https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/pull/108063 and https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/pull/105036? I guess "whichever first gets to a point where it's an improvement over the status quo"?12:36:44
@raboof:matrix.orgraboof(I like the progress in https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/pull/108063 but it seems rather ambitious to both switch to markdown and switch to a multi-page layout in one PR - I think we're underestimating how good a search feature needs to be to be able to rival currently searching the single-page version of the docs ;) )12:38:04
@yuki:backalley.clubYuki (they/them)I think it's currently debated upon so nothing decisive yet but it's quite spread out onto multiple PRs12:38:28
@yuki:backalley.clubYuki (they/them)Similar conversation can be seen here: https://github.com/NixOS/nix/pull/7389 12:38:51
@raboof:matrix.orgraboofyeah, tricky. I guess it's inevitable to have some duplicate work as we discover what works best, hopefully it doesn't to 'camps'/'sides' too much12:42:35

Is the docs team meeting every week now? No one has added any entry to the community calendar
Yuki (they/them): Yeah, it's unfortunate that we have two calendars. The community one is not really good for meetings because one can't manage invitations. Also it's not possible to give recurrent events an end date.
Luc Perkins: I updated it, but it's not correct because we cannot express that there probably won't be a meeting on 2022-12-29 https://discourse.nixos.org/t/community-calendar/18589/61

Where's the second calendar?

@lucperkins:matrix.orgLuc PerkinsI wonder if there are any strings we can pull to make that better15:53:36
@lucperkins:matrix.orgLuc PerkinsThat seems... suboptimal15:53:48
