So I wonder if now would be a good time to start reviewing it for FSDG


The upcoming 0.7 seems to address the part about being bootable and
working on real hardware so it seems to make sense to move forward and
take a look at the rest. The limitations mentioned in that file
shouldn't be an issue IMO because, AFAIK, the GNU FSDG doesn't say
that a given system "must" have a GUI or that it "must" offer disk
encryption, etc. and being for advanced users seems fine.

I agree, libreCMC does not have a shiny GUI (most likely won't in the future).
I look forward to testing and auditing this release of guix.
