The role of the administrators is to support the members of the org, and the Nix project in general.


The administrators are responsible for serving the community to the best of their ability and availability.

They provide services such as:

  • keep the systems updated and patched
  • reply to user requests
  • host new services that could help the project
  • on-board new projects
  • resolve conflict

The administrators are the only "owners" of the github organization.

Quorum of 5 rule

To reduce the attack surface on the project, the administrative team size is limited to 5 people.
