git: Fix git-gui to work on Catalina #79769

@virusdave virusdave commented Feb 10, 2020

Motivation for this change

The existing post-install was not successfully patching the git-gui script,
and thus was invoking the packaged osx app which uses the system tk,
which is too old to work (and is no longer supported by Apple anyway).

Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS linux)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nixpkgs-review --run "nixpkgs-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits CONTRIBUTING.md.
