I should mention that I spent entire days on this, and some of the
conclusions are described here:

I invite the Guilers among us to join the fun.  :-)  A bug that serious
is a problem for Guile.

Woohoo, thank you!

Yeah I think we need to reopen the discussion.  We discussed it at the
GHM but this should take place here on guix-devel I guess.

Yes, let’s squash bugs!

There are many ways people can help, and one of them is triage: close
bugs that are already fixed, determine whether old bugs are still
relevant and close those that are obsolete, retitle bugs to better
reflect what the problem is, ping people asking for more information.
After that, there are more-or-less “easy” packaging bugs in the list
that can be a good starting point.
