I think that job can be cancelled and a new one started, since there
have been quite a few fixes since. I've now successfully built
`./pre-inst-env guix build $(guix package -A python | awk '{print $1}')`
locally, but there may still be some leaf packages that are failing.

Yes, it would have to be merged now or wait until after the release.
Very few actual problems have been solved, and none in core packages.
So let's postpone this and focus on getting master in shape :-)
