Python supply-chain with dream2nix

 Towards a secure, extensible & reproducible Python supply-chain with dream2nix

We aim to improve the software supply chain of Python with Nix by extending Dream2nix. While the Nix build system offers great reproducibility and auditability features, the effort required to manual write build expressions for all transitive dependencies has lead to the creation of various "lang2nix" tools. Dream2nix is a collection of such tools and a library handling shared concerns, with existing implementations for NodeJS, Rust and Haskell. This project is going to implement first class Python support in dream2nix. Packagers and developers will be able to build standards-compliant projects with nix automatically, while still being able to transparently apply patches where necessary.
