Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Kai Harries <kai.harries@xxxxxxxxx>

* Package name    : nix
  Version         : 1.1.15
  Upstream Author : Eelco Dolstra <edolstra@xxxxxxxxx>
* URL             : https://nixos.org/nix/

  Programming Lang: C++, Shell, C, Perl
  Description     : Purely functional package manager

A powerful package manager for Linux and other Unix systems that
makes package management reliable and reproducible. Nix provides
atomic upgrades and rollbacks, side-by-side installation of multiple
versions of a package, multi-user package management and easy setup of
build environments. 

I personally use it to install software that is not part of Debian or
software that I need in a newer version.

My packaging efforts can be found here [1].

I am looking for a sponsor.
