@civodul Congrats!

Would be nice for #NixOS to use Disarchive.

How do you fill disarchive.guix.gnu.org? Do you pull the json file?

(i'm actually wondering if NixOS could use your tarball metadata server :/)

@lewo There’s a CI job continuously “disarchiving” and populating the database:
lists.gnu.org/archive/html/gui

Would be nice if this could be useful to NixOS!

Perhaps it could be maintained by SWH longer-term—we’ll see.

@lewo BTW, I talked about the “nixguix” loader you worked on and which allowed us to tremendously improve archive coverage!

git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/guix

@civodul Thx! And I'm glad this is useful for Guix!

@kirschwipfel In a nutshell, SWH does not archive tarballs—it archives the *contents* of tarballs. is a tool to “disassemble” and “reassemble” tarballs so we can reconstruct them:
ngyro.com/software/disarchive.

Slides and maybe video should be available soon…
