<zimoun>civodul, if you have some CPU to burn, I would be interested if you build Julia from core-updates-frozen. Since you had an issue, I would like to be sure it is completely fixed. Because it had been a mess. :-)
<civodul>there are substitutes, so everything's fine? :-)
<civodul>our work is mostly to help change social norms
<zimoun>On this seminar, it is about Reproducible Environment, which is already nice. But no question about preservation of source code… weird. Am I biased? ;-)
<zimoun>Oula, the Nix mechanism for channel seems complicated for reproducing later.
<civodul>for Nix i think you can always just grab the Nixpkgs revision you want
<civodul>but you also need a version of Nix that can actually interpret it
<civodul>(since the Nix language evolves over time)
<civodul>this is the main difference compared to Guix
<zimoun>civodul, yeah. Well, from the demo, it appears to me that “guix time-machine” is just missing. And it is hard to guarantee that the Nix code used for building is *exactly* the same. Well, it appears to me they miss inferior, right?
<civodul>i think (but i haven't checked in a while) that (1) the Nix user interface is less convenient and describe+time-machine
<civodul>and (2) the false decoupling between Nix and Nixpkgs may complicate things more often than not
<zimoun>civodul, julia should have finished to build. Does it?
<drakonis>zimoun: they kinda have something like that
