Hi Julien.

Thank you for your thorough comments, I really appreciate it!
I hope that the quality of my patches increase in time so please bear with me 
for a bit :)

Hi Dan, thanks for this patch! I have some comments below to help improve the
quality of future patches, as well as two questions you need to answer before
I can push that patch.

+(define-public coq-equations
+  (package
+    (name "coq-equations")
+    (synopsis "Equations - a function definition plugin")

Could you put this just before the description field, so this package definition
looks more like the rest of guix? A better synopsis would be "Function definiton
plugin for coq" I think.

I've reordered the fields to match the rest of the package definitions in guix.

+    (version "1.2-beta")

Why a beta version? We try to stick to stable releases in Guix. Please add a
comment explaining the reason.

Oh, I just wanted to use the latest released version. I can replace it with the 
version 1.1 while I wait for the non-beta 1.2 releas.

+    (source (origin
+              (method url-fetch)
+              (uri (string-append
+ "";
+                    version "-8.8.tar.gz"))
+              (file-name (string-append name "-v" version "8.8.tar.gz"))

We cannot use auto-generated tarballs from github, because we found that
they sometimes get regenerated in an unreproducible way, so it breaks the
checksum test. You can use this instead:

(method git-fetch)
(uri (git-reference
        (url "";)
        (commit (string-append "v" version "-8.8"))))

and update the sha256 accordingly. As an added bonus, this means that we
can always fetch from the software heritage in case the repo disappears
one day :)

I was not aware of that. How can I get the sha256 hash in this case? Normally I would 
do `guix download <url>`.

+              (sha256
+               (base32
+    (build-system gnu-build-system)
+    (native-inputs
+     `(("findlib" ,ocaml)

ocaml doesn't provide findlib directly, ocaml-findlib does. What do you
want to do here?

Sorry, I think I was confused here. I've corrected this in the updated patch.

+       ("coq"     ,coq)
+       ("camlp5"  ,camlp5)))
+    (arguments
+     `(#:test-target "test-suite"
+       #:phases
+       (modify-phases %standard-phases
+         (replace 'configure
+           (lambda* (#:key outputs #:allow-other-keys)
+             (invoke "coq_makefile" "-f" "_CoqProject" "-o" "Makefile")))
+         (replace 'install
+           (lambda* (#:key outputs #:allow-other-keys)
+             (setenv "COQLIB" (string-append (assoc-ref outputs
"out") "/lib/coq/"))
+             (invoke "make"
+                     (string-append "COQLIB=" (assoc-ref outputs "out")
+                                    "/lib/coq/")
+                     "install"))))))

Please make sure that these two phases both return #t.

I thought that `invoke' automatically checks that the return code is correct?

+    (description "Equations provides a notation for writing programs
+by dependent pattern-matching and (well-founded) recursion in Coq. It
+compiles everything down to eliminators for inductive types, equality
+and accessibility, providing a definitional extension to the Coq

Please make sure that each sentence is separated by two spaces.
`guix lint coq-equations` should be able to tell you about it.

+    (home-page "";)
+    (license license:lgpl2.1)))

Thanks again! I really only need an answer for the beta version and
ocaml/findlib questions. I can take care of the rest, but I would
appreciate it if you could do it yourself ;)
