So!  We have a new debbugs tracking of guix-patches.  Great!  Those who
are emacs users in the know probably like to use the M-x debbugs-gnu
interface.  Here's what you need to do:

Add this to your .emacs:
  (add-to-list 'debbugs-gnu-all-packages "guix-patches")

Now open up debbugs-gnu:
  C-u M-x debbugs-gnu <RET> <RET> guix-patches <RET> n y

And now you have a nice emacs interface!

I found this documentation on debbugs useful:

And also, maybe you want to tag bugs or etc.  Use the 'C' key from the
emacs interface!

Happy bug triaging!

Say you want to test one patch that has been submitted to patches-guix

How do you do that ?
How do you extract the patch from within the Emacs Debbugs buffer ?

I see there's a menu that pops up with the mouse-3 button with a "save as..." issue.

Do you just save it somewhere and then you continue from there ?

Further, there are 2 issues in that menu that make me curious

"View interactively..." that asks me to indicate a Viewer. Which viewer ? What is this about ?

"Take action on part..." that asks me to indicate an Action. Again, what is this about ?
