Thank you for the pointer. Good to see that the problem is almost addressed.
I will try to understand the discussion and see what is the status of
the proposed patch.

It is an half cooked solution because the Guix project cannot archive
all; for example in term of store resources.

The content-addressed mirror should be SWH, IMHO.

Well, once sources.json will be up, it should be almost done for the future.
But we still need to push all the correct sources that are on
ci.guix.gnu.org; at least all the url based source of package.

Do you have suggestion for a plan?

Thank you. This should fix the harfbuzz mismatch issue. Cool! :-)

Hum? I thought that I used ci.guix.gnu.org as substitutes... soI need to check.
