<koobs> creation of that repo by _0mp i assume
<koobs> motivated by their (or someone's) desire to get nix into ports? :)
<koobs> presumably
<koobs> qyliss: _0mp will know more
<_0mp> well, I just thought that would be fun to have nix on freebsd
<_0mp> I want to get all the tests pass before I commit it into ports
<thefloweringash> is there any support in nixpkgs?
<_0mp> no, not at all afaik
<_0mp> I mean, it is not officially supported and some bootstrapping is going to be required I guess
<thefloweringash> I still have a couple of freebsd machines around that I haven't converted to nixos yet, so I'm keeping an eye out here
<_0mp> if anyone is willing to hack on it during 36C3 then let me know
<ar> qyliss: nix is fun and, imho, the least-broken package manager
<koobs> _0mp: so, high level, whats are the benefits with this?
<koobs> _0mp: is it, run nix packages on freebsd ?
<koobs> there's something i like a bout nix, syntax aside, the fact that its super declarative (apparently) and enables super productivity to create packages

<qyliss> FreeBSD used to be supported in Nixpkgs
<qyliss> But that has falled way out of date
<qyliss> Something I'm experimenting with right now is trying to get Nixpkgs from 4 years ago running, and then trying to move forward gradually from there
