@civodul I wanted to raise the topic of storing container metadata (in the style of what tools like pristine-tar do) here too, so thanks for giving me the chance :-)

Do I get it right that the primary reason why tarballs aren't systematically archived is that doing so would be too expensive storage-wise (no deduplication)?

@rdicosmo The discussion of the "source of trust" is an important one, and it's interesting to see how we can address it going forward.

are you suggesting that sources.json itself be an "origin"?

The sources.json URL is an "origin". Each snapshot associated to this origin has several branches. Each branch corresponds to a source of the sources.json file.
There is also special branch named evaluation which points to the commit specified by the attribute revision of your sources.json file: this is to link a snapshot to a nixpkgs/guix commit.

So, we can now consider the sources.json file format as stable and you could make the required changes on your sources.json file. A new SHW origin should then be added.

We need a name for this origin type, one of the hardest problem in CS :-)

Can you suggest something that makes sense for both Nix, Guix, and other players in the field? As an outsider I'm a bit at loss at proposing something…

@civodul @zimoun I'm wondering if you generate a sources.json file for any commit of your guix repository or only for those that have been evaluated and pushed to your binary cache by your CI?

While looking into this with @zimoun, we realized it would be nicer if url were an array of URLs (as is the case at https://guix.gnu.org/packages.json) rather than a single URL.

without changing now the crawler, i.e., the crawler can ingest only the first elem of the array and it will be modified later.

Yeah, I was thinking to introduce this later. But as you said, we could still modify the format without supporting it in the lister.
So, that's fine for me if we generate a list of urls instead of a single url. I could easily update the file NixOS is generating.
