I agree, I think it would be best to keep the old commands as-is, and
slowly add functionality to the new command. I think that mapping the
old commands into the new one just creates a second inconsistent method
to call them that we will also have to eventually discourage.

Doing it this way keeps only two interfaces, the old insonsistent ones
(nix-*), and the new consistent and well thought out one (nix).

I'm not really involved in the development of Nix, but I don't think the
old interface will go away with 1.12 already.  So far it's been a
separate "nix" command that didn't clash with the rest, I think, and I
don't know any reason to remove the old CLI too quickly.

Actually, wouldn't be great if we transfer that functions over a time
rather than doing big bang?

I was thinking recently that probably simple bash wrapper aggregating
various commands under common executable would be good start. In that case
we can then replace functions one by one with new implementation or
reogranize it. What do you think?

At some point but there is no timeline yet. We don't even have a list of
regressions to fix before release yet.

[Nix-dev] NixOS and nix 1.12

2017-04-13 Thread Volth
Hi

Is nix-1.12 going to replace traditional nix command line utilities on NixOS ?
If yes, when it is going to happen, approximately?
With NixOS-17.09, 18.03 or later?
