<xentrac>I would be surprised if davexunit were wrong about them, but I have to admit I very rarely look at the "source code" I download with npm
<xentrac>20:44 < davexunit> xentrac: npm only sort-of hosts free software, though. they host a lot of minified stuff, which is not source code.
<xentrac>20:44 < davexunit> and they, like rubygems, make no effort to give users the source code that was used to build that binary.
<xentrac>20:45 < davexunit> so I question that they have more free software than Debian.
<xentrac>20:45 < davexunit> also, node packages are notorious for being tiny, and thus there are tons of them, so counting the number of packages is a poor measure for the amount of free software available.
<xentrac>but I also think that npm has a huge amount of free software, outweighing Debian by sloccount, last I heard
<xentrac>and some of it is actually free software whose legal status is merely slightly hazy because the authors haven't bothered to clarify it because they're hackers, not lawyers, and it sucks that we have to become lawyers in order to share information safely
<lfam>No. I have still have all the non-root profiles. But I did delete the root profiles by accident and then garbage collected on purpose (needed to reclaim disk space after finally getting the bash patches to work)
<davexunit>but none of those profiles have guix in them?
<lfam>I can use guix. I was able to install libgrcypt and guile.
<lfam>But when I try to work from my local source tree it fails.
<rekado>"stack is a cross-platform tool supporting Linux, Windows, and OS X, designed for reproducible builds. It manages the configuration and installation of the compiler and packages needed by your project, and then builds, tests, and benchmarks your code."
<rekado>"For those of you trying to get your coworkers to use Haskell, one of the most important features of Stack is reproducible build plans. This should significantly reduce the incidence of frustration, where a coworker cannot build your successful build. For even more reproducibility, Stack ships with the ability to build inside a Docker container (and, for that matter, to generate runtime Docker images for robust deployment)."
