    1. type Option type, providing type-checking and value merging.

      This is vague to the point of being useless, given the Nix expression language is untyped.

      A snippet from freeswitch.nix:

            configTemplate = mkOption {
              type = types.path;
              # omitted
            configDir = mkOption {
              type = with types; attrsOf path;
              # omitted
      • Where does types come from?

        See NixOS manual at "Option types".

      • What is the difference between the path types? (I guess, the second one is attribute set consisting only of paths.)
