By my own observation, systems including Guix either officially
or by third-party / community methods:

Debian: from past discussion and on request from Whonix iirc it is currently
        not possible due to Debian Packaging Standards (expected package
        behavior) or something along the lines, see guix-devel archives.
           is on 0.12, needs an update. Any slacker up for that task?
           Otherwise, ping the maintainer:

We could mention those on the Download page?
