So, if you provided the source scheme to generate the image, and signed
the image, people would both have the option to generate the image
themselves, or download your signed binary image if they trust you?

Honestly, at this point the most important thing is to get things to the
point where we have *a* documented process to install GuixSD on these
servers; once we have that, and assuming we also have documentation /
tooling where people could reproduce the whole process (even if they
used the image you provided, as long as they could reproduce that step
too) I think we're in a much better state than we are... and we could
refine further from there.

My opinion, anyway!
