Nix to SBOM generator targeting the CycloneDX format

With the increasing importance of understanding the software supply chain, both for security and legal purposes, it has become necessary to provide users, administrators, and developers with an accurate picture of what's in the software they use. Like with any bookkeeping task, doing that manually is cumbersome and hard to keep up to date. The better course of action is to use the information encoded within functional package management tools like Nix. With Genealogos you can generate a compliance-ready CycloneDX Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) for any package available in the nixpkgs repository or in fact from any nix flake -- and automatically keep it up to date.
