Great! You are very welcome! This is a really important project, though the scope is quite a bit larger than one person can realistically achieve in 3 months, so you'll have to prioritise (we'll help you with that). You can start by taking a look at issues labeled "nix-local-build" on the bug tracker: https://github.com/haskell/cabal/issues?q=is%3Aopen+is%3Aissue+label%3A%22cabal-install%3A+nix-local-build%22 > [...] > > I am currently looking for mentors to help me with the project. Is > anybody interested? Duncan Coutts, as the principal author of new-build, would be the obvious first choice. However, he seems to be unavailable right now, but will probably be back before summer. I can also help you with your project, and I've also spoken to Edward Z. Yang, with whom I believe you've already had some interaction; he's also open to the idea of being a mentor or a co-mentor. Please don't forget to apply before tomorrow's deadline. Good luck!
