<catonano>jmd: at the Fosdem there was a brief discussion about the differences in policies in dealing with reproducibility of the build in Guix and Nix. cbaines seemed to have an opinion about how Nix seeks "convenience" and Ludo and Cwebber seemed to have opinions about getting things rigtht.
<catonano>jmd: I can't be clearer than this because I don' t fully understand the issues at play here
<catonano>jmd: but you can asl the poeple I mentioned
<thomasd>getting things right can be very convenient though :)
<civodul>catonano: some people in Nix land do pay attention to reproducibility and bootstrapping, but i'd say that the "spirit" is to get something that "works" as quickly as possible
<civodul>which i think is also because Nixpkgs is not specifically committed to software freedom
<catonano>civodul: of course some nixers care about reproducibility and bootstrapping ! I was generalizing !
<catonano>didn' t mean to misrepresent anyone or anything. So thanks fpr pointing out
<thomasd>(I seem to remember there was a proof of concept node.js importer for guix, which kind stranded on the fact that too many node packages are incomplete (from reproducibility pov), but can't find the thread on the guix-devel archive)
<civodul>thomasd: jlicht wrote a farily complete importer during GSoC last year
<clacke[m]>catonano: "at the Fosdem there was a brief discussion about the differences in policies in dealing with reproducibility of the build in Guix and Nix" Might there be a recording or was this the hallway track?
<catonano>clacke[m]: it was at dinner in a restaurant where cwebber led us. I couldn' t even find it again ;-)
