An update on the guild-hall.

It is still here, with lots of activity, mostly administrative. It can
now be installed, has minimal docs (from dorodango), and passes
distcheck. I trimmed dependencies and otherwise folded things under the
(guild ...) namespace.
Also it is the (guild ...) namespace right now -- I am having trouble
with metaphors. It seems like the guild-hall package doesn't actually
install the guild hall, more like it gives access to guild halls that
might be on the internet. Anyway, something to figure out. I think
that the right answer will come once I move the commands down from under
"guild hall" -- so "guild update" instead of "guild hall update".

Igalia did kindly offer, but Ludovic made the good point that we should
try the FSF first, and they do seem to be able to host a VM for us, so
we will probably use the FSF.
But beyond hosting the bundles and available.scm, I am still not clear
on what guildhall.gnu.org should offer. It should probably have a
facility for submitting packages, along with a GPG keyring. Perhaps it
should run tests on the whole guildhall archive every so often, for
consistency and also for style perhaps. Perhaps it should host
documentation. Who knows!

I'm still interested, though maybe it will be easier when things
stabilize a bit. We should probably figure out where to host the
guild-hall stuff as well. In the meantime patches and such are most
welcome! Clone the archive above and get to hacking :-)
