Hello Guix!

Currently the binary tarball populates ~root/.guix-profile.  This creates
confusion when people realize that ‘guix pull’, instead, updates
~root/.config/guix; it’s also inconvenient because it forces root to do
“guix pull && guix package -u guix” or similar if they want to update
the default Guix revision on the distro.

These patches address this by having the binary tarball populate
~root/.config/guix/current like ‘guix pull’ does.

There’s one downside though: with the last patch, the ‘glibc-utf8-locales’
is no longer included because ~root/.config/guix/current would be the
wrong place for it.  Consequently, users have to explicitly install it
in ~root/.guix-profile and set GUIX_LOCPATH accordingly.

A possible fix would be to modify ‘guix pack’ so that it can create not
just two profiles, where ~root/.guix-profile would contain
‘glibc-utf8-locales’.  That’d be a non-trivial change, though.



Ludovic Courtès (3):
  install: Parameterize the profile name for
  pack: Add '--profile-name'.
  build: Binary tarball now populates the "current-guix" profile.

I went ahead and pushed it as e9926f80c6553fde50ce1fcfd38d6370f841efd2.
