Which projects' maintenance or development would you like to fund?

Published on September 21, 2021 by Robert Hensing

The Nix πŸ’™ Deployment collective is just starting out. Which projects do you think need some extra help?

About


The goal of "Nix πŸ’™ Deployments" is to let you enjoy Nix at work, by funding the "boring" review and maintenance work of important projects such as NixOps, but other prominent deployment technologies qualify too, including projects that focus on testing or programming language package manager integrations.

Our first project is to speed up the release of NixOps 2, but perhaps Docker-based tech could be next, like Nixpkgs dockerTools, KubeNix or Arion. Or what about RFC 0022, a Minimal NixOS Module List for super fast config evaluation. Join the conversation!

This collective is administrated by Robert Hensing, known from Hercules CI. It goes without saying that funds will not be used for anything Hercules CI-specific. After all the focus is on build and deployment tools, which are independent from CI/CD platforms. The only fee that applies is from OpenSource Collective, which manages the financial side of things, such as taxes.

Funds will be spent primarily on
1. Labor cost of reviews
2. Maintenance such as improving tests, linting, auditing, etc
3. Cloud provisioning costs incurred as part of testing

Contact me if you want to apply for these funds, or if you want to know more before making a donation.

Shoutout to Domen and https://opencollective.com/nix-macos who was (clearly) a source of inspiration and help!
