This was already discussed in 


This software is unmaintained and nobody is willing to maintain it.
If nobody complains, we should drop it from Guix.

Here is an archive of a git repository:


But it doesn't have any commit with id


which is the one we use in Guix.

I tried to download it from SWH, but it failed:

$ guix build -S --no-substitutes guile-bash

Maybe it is not part of SWH? Message could be nicer. Though when I'm
searching for individual files from above git repository, I can find
them in SWH:


It would be interesting if I can go in SWH from a file to the full
repository. Does anyone know if that is possible?
