Well, let open a new thread and resume the previous discussion should
nice.  From what I remember, the consensus had been (almost) reached and
none of us took the time to propose a draft patch. :-)

We could imagine a hierarchy where the profile are looked for––say
~/.cache/guix/profiles/ then ~/.config/guix/profiles then etc.––or an
environment variable to let the user have the control.  Whatever, we all
have an idea but nothing concrete to discussion the details. ;-)

>From my understanding, set a central place where the profiles live would
be very helpful.  Having only one big profile slows down a lot of
operation when several ones ease the maintenance, IMHO.


PS: Personally, I have profiles with my tools (Emacs, notmuch,
etc. )under ~/.config/guix/profiles and these profiles are generated
with manifests under ~/.config/guix/manifests/ (folder under Git).  Then
inside each project, I have a manifest file specific for the project,
then sometime the profile lives here, sometime I only use “guix
environment”, etc.
