nixpkgs.overlays

List of overlays to use with the Nix Packages collection. (For details, see the Nixpkgs documentation.) It allows you to override packages globally. This is a function that takes as an argument the original Nixpkgs. The first argument should be used for finding dependencies, and the second should be used for overriding recipes.
