Personally, I'm sympathetic to the idea, although I'd rather see how far
we can improve our processes to make them as easy as possible without
sacrificing quality. But, if this does become a thing, I hope the
license will be compatible so that parts can be merged into GNU Guix
when they are ready.

Otherwise, the problem of duplication that you mentioned earlier will be
really bad.
