Just a reply on the notabug question (I don't have much time otherwise):
Notabug will eventually move to an instance of, you can read
about this in their own issues where I asked about some question back
then (no link, sorry .. my name was 'ng0' back on there). Developing
with pagure might be easier (fedora and surrounding communities)
compared to the situation they describe in the issue.
I started packaging pagure for this reason, which is about ~85% done
(services + pagure itself left to wrap it up ... pagure itself is more
or less done, just the service are needed. I'm more than happy to pass
this on (could rebase the pagure patch), as I know I have taken on some
tasks which would be better handled by different people :)
That is in case you want to use a GuixSD as a host, otherwise you should
not have many problems.
