    Hi! I contribute a bit to Guix, and we’re discussing turning some of the things you mentioned into bug reports to help future users :-) Join us at #guix on Freenode if you have IRC!

    Also, what I do for contributing back to Guix is the following, it’s really quite simple!

    git clone https://git.savannah.gnu.org/git/guix.git
    cd guix
    guix environment guix # enter an environment suitable for building guix
    ./bootstrap && ./configure --localstatedir=/var
    make -j$(nproc)
    # make changes (add packages, etc)
    make -j$(nproc)
    ./pre-inst-env guix build mynewpackage # invoking guix as "./pre-inst-env guix" means you're using the guix you just built

      I was planning on joining the IRC, but the fact that I have to register with NickServ is a major incontinence inconvenience. I usually don’t join these kinds of channels, so I don’t remember what my username of password is, ergo I have to create a new one, that requires Email as far as I recall – which isn’t working.

      I will see what I can report back, since I would like to see these bugs fixed.

        I think you mean “inconvenience”. :-)

          Nah, both words work in this context…

            That’s what happens when you rely too much on your spell checker.
