+This year Guix was lucky to have 
[ 3 GSoC projects], and 
they have made rather good progress so far:
+* Manolis successfully completed the recipes to get a 
[ cross-compilation 
toolchain to GNU/Hurd], with part of the work already in the main branch.  This 
allowed him to produce statically-linked bootstrap binaries (stumbling upon 
nasty issues on the way.)  Manolis is now 
[ running 
Guix and building packages natively] on GNU/Hurd, which will constitute a large 
p [...]
+* Rémi has written [ 
Guile bindings] to crucial parts of the [ GNUnet] API, 
including the file sharing API.  This will allow him to move to the next step: 
Writing [ 
tools to publish and retrieve] Guix 
substitutes] (pre-built binaries.)
+* Rohan laid the foundations of the 
[ DHCP client].  The 
current code can send packets on all the configured network interfaces.  Rohan 
hopes to have working code to establish leases in the following weeks.
+Happy hacking!
+== About GNU Guix ==
+[ GNU Guix] is a functional package manager 
for the GNU system.  The Guix System Distribution or GuixSD is an advanced 
distribution of the GNU system that relies on GNU Guix and 
[ respects 
the user's freedom].
+In addition to standard package management features, Guix supports 
transactional upgrades and roll-backs, unprivileged package management, 
per-user profiles, and garbage collection.  Guix uses low-level mechanisms from 
the Nix package manager, except that packages are defined as native 
[ Guile] modules, using extensions to the 
[ Scheme] language.  GuixSD offers a declarative approach to 
operating system configuration management, and is  [...]
+GuixSD can be used on an i686 or x86_64 machine.  It is also possible to use 
Guix on top of an already installed GNU/Linux system, including on mips64el and
