This is useful, thanks for looking into it.

I would prefer it to make a separate linter, like ‘source-file-name’.
The reason is that ‘source’ is a relatively expensive check, since it
needs to probe URLs (so you might want to skip it in some cases),
whereas the linter your propose is lightweight.

Could you make these package updates a separate patch?  Some may trigger
large rebuilds, so you may have to keep them for ‘core-updates’ or such.

Opening a connection to the store in the middle of the code
(‘with-store’) is Bad Practice.  ;-)

I think this can actually be made simpler, with something akin to what
‘node-full-name’ does in guix/scripts/graph.scm.  Maybe we could extract
an ‘origin-actual-file-name’ procedure from that and move it to (guix
packages).  WDYT?

“file name” (two words).

Could you send an updated patch?
