You made a new "seren.scm" file, but didn't add a standard header (with
copyright, license, etc.) to it. Also new files should be registered in
However, there is no need to put this pakcage into a separate module. I
think (gnu packages telephony) is a suitable module for it.
The commit message should look like this.
gnu: Add seren.
* gnu/packages/telephony.scm (seren): New variable.

Usually instead of deleting 'check' phase, we disable tests, so it
could look like this:
(arguments '(#:tests? #f)) ; no "check" target

If you want to make separate paragraphs here, use additional newlines:
"Seren is a simple VoIP program based on the Opus codec that allows
you to create a voice conference from the terminal, with up to 10
partecipants, without having to register accounts, exchange emails, or
add people to contact lists.
All you need to join an existing conference is the host name or IP
address of one of the partecipants.
Seren creates a dynamic peer-to-peer network of equivalent nodes which
exchange text and audio data using a UDP connection, and offers the user
the ability to change the quality/bitrate on the fly, encrypt the
traffic and record the calls.")
(Though I think this description is a bit long, but it's probably OK)

The rest looks good to me, could you send an updated patch?
And thanks for contributing!
