- GNU Guix consists of Scheme code that implements the deployment model
- of the Nix package management tool. In fact, it currently talks to a
- build daemon whose code comes from Nix (see the manual for details.)
- Nix was initially written by Eelco Dolstra; other people have been
- contributing to it. See `nix/AUTHORS' for details.
- The list of GNU Guix contributors is now generated from the output of
- 'git log' and written to this file, as can be seen in release tarballs.
