bug#38446: Guix pull broken

Hi folks,

The reason for these errors is that various parts of GNU Savannah have
been under a sizable botnet attack for a few days now.  Savannah hackers
and FSF sysadmins have been working on it mitigating the attack, but it
is an ongoing effort.

In the mean time, I suggest using "member checkouts" (i.e. ssh) for
accessing the repositories.  You need to a Savannah account for this,
but to my knowledge you don't have to be a member of that project to
just pull from its repositories using ssh.  Another option would be
using the git:// protocol, which I recommend against, as it's insecure
and prone to MITM attacks.

for more details.

Hope this helps.
