Gnus/5.130005 (Ma Gnus v0.5) Emacs/24.2 (gnu/linux)
And merry new year! :-)
The (distro ...) name for modules of the distro wasn’t meant to last.
Initially, I thought we could find a name for the distro, and substitute
that name to “distro”. Possible names:
• Jinn, as in “Jinn is not Nixpkgs/NixOS”;
• Guixotic, as Guix + Exotic (suggested by RMS).
However, I’ve come to think that we don’t necessarily need a separate
name for the distro, but we do need a name for the module name space.
The obvious solution would be (gnu ...). There’d be modules like
(gnu packages openssl), which does not mean that OpenSSL is a GNU
package, but I think that should be clear in this context. Anyway,
that’s the option that I like the most currently.
