I bumped/added these packages because I needed them to prototype
stuff. I've discovered Guix a few weeks ago and it is becoming the
easiest way for me to deploy the latest versions of some programs at
home and $DAY_JOB, where machines with various flavors of GNU/Linux are

I haven't looked at GuixSD too deeply. Are you trying to use s6 as init
system for a Guix-based set-up? If so, I'll post a patch to add s6-rc
[1], the service manager for s6-based systems, to complete the skarnet

Note that the author of s6 only provides mechanisms for managing
services, not policies. So, you'll still need to write the later. You
may find more information and examples in my attempt to use s6 as init
for embedded systems [2].
