just follow the rss :)

> Providing nix with a proper type system is a long running issue (see

> opportunity for nix to improve its awesomeness.
> The crowdfunding campaign (and a slightly more detailled description of
> the project) is open at https://www.gofundme.com/typing-nix, and you
> are all invited to donate.
> Of course, I'll be happy to answer any question, by mail or on
> irc/matrix (I am regnat[m] on freenode).
