Join us for a Guix hackathon on Sep. 27-28!

Item posted by Ludovic Courtès <civodul> on Tue 16 Sep 2014 07:58:44 AM UTC.

The GNU Guix project is organizing a hackathon on September 27th and 28th, 2014. The hackathon will take place primarily on-line, on the #guix IRC channel on Freenode. We have started collecting a list of hacking ideas. Feel free to stop by and make more suggestions!

The hackathon is accessible to anyone with experience in GNU/Linux packaging or systems hacking. Scheme programmers will find additional things to work on in the tool set. Finally, we will also be welcoming newcomers and helping them get started.

This is a followup to last year's hackathon, organized for GNU's 30th anniversary.

About GNU Guix

GNU Guix is the functional package manager for the GNU system, and a distribution thereof.

In addition to standard package management features, Guix supports transactional upgrades and roll-backs, unprivileged package management, per-user profiles, and garbage collection. It also offers a declarative approach to operating system configuration management. Guix uses low-level mechanisms from the Nix package manager, with Guile Scheme programming interfaces.

At this stage the distribution can be used on an i686 or x86_64 machine. It is also possible to use Guix on top of an already installed GNU/Linux system, including on mips64el.
