I think you are confusing the system you are running (Guix SD) and the
system you are developing (the Guix git repo). `.config/guix/latest' is
part of the your running system, so it is not the place you want to
experiment with changes. To develop Guix, you need to clone its git repo
by running:

  $ git clone git://

Then, you can `cd' into the cloned repo and start running the
`./boostrap' stuffs and so on...
In case you are new to git, you can read the git book
( or simply search for it on the
Internet, Stackoverflow is the place where I learn most of git.
