<zimoun>civodul: I do not remember the last adventures of sources.json. Is it still built by the website?
<civodul>zimoun: hi! nope, it's built by an mcron job:
<zimoun>civodul: cool! Thanks. That’s what I was looking for.
<zimoun>civodul: yesterday, someone pointed ’patched’ as ’origin’. And that’s not covered, if I read correctly.
<zimoun>What is the best: fix ’package-direct-sources’ which does not return all the origins?
<zimoun>Or ’all-origins’ in build-package-metadata?
<civodul>"'patched' as 'origin'"?
<civodul>oh sorry
<zimoun>see the package ’ntp’ as example.
<zimoun>My bad, sorry for the typo. :-)
<civodul>hmm good question
<civodul>ACTION looks
<zimoun>Well, I think ’package-direct-sources’ is the best to do
<civodul>yes, i agree
<zimoun>but then “guix time-machine -C 1.2.3 -- repl -- build-package-metadata.scm foo/” will have holes.
<civodul>yes, but that's ok
<civodul>we'll arrange to run build-package-metadata.scm with the latest Guix
<zimoun>Yeah, but I would like to be able to produce old sources.json for feeding the new guixnix SWH loader.
<zimoun>Anyway, that’s can be separated. :-)
<civodul>yes :-)
<civodul>regarding the other items you brought up, i wonder how we can copy from
<civodul>looks like we'll need Timothy's help if we want to rsync from it
<zimoun>I hope Timothy is fine and will be around for helping
<civodul>should i email Timothy for this issue?
<zimoun>yeah, start’s a good start. :-)
<zimoun>done with #62036 for patches as origin.
