Hi Guix,

I wrote almost 6 days ago:

Here are a bunch of things that we should look into:

* Outstanding patches.  There are many patches in the queue at
  guix-patches[1] that we should go through, comment on, and/or apply
  before the release.  Who would like to join a task force to do that
  together?  Let’s pick 5 patches each and review them so that we can
  either comment to ask for changes or to apply them.


* breakage since the last core-updates merge.  Since the long overdue
merge of the “core-updates” branch we have a few serious problems on i686 (e.g. the gst-plugins-base package) and armhf. Who would like to
  lead an effort to investigate and fix these problems?  (Note: you
  obviously don’t need to fix them yourself, just keep track of these
  things and coordinate with others who investigate them.)

* collecting new features and big changes in NEWS.  The NEWS file
already lists some of the changes that the next release would provide
  compared to 0.14.0, but we all know that there are more.  Who would
like to take charge of the NEWS file? This involves asking people for changes they would really like to be mentioned and coordinating with other volunteers to search through all commits since v0.14.0 to find
  noteworthy changes.

Did I miss anything?  Who wants to help?

We aim for a release on June 30, 2018. Unfortunately, so far nobody has
come forward to help us coordinate one of these three tasks.


Thanks for this writeup.  I live a somewhat nomadic lifestyle at the
moment, and recently my phone was stolen, so I'm only online very

There is one bug I'll try to fix before the release: when doing an EFI
install, the ESP must be mounted at "/boot/efi" on the live system,
instead of relative to the mounted system (e.g. "/mnt/boot/efi").  This
is a regression since 0.13.

On the NEWS side, here is what springs to mind:

* `guix weather` now reports CI statistics
* Guix will give hints for how to resolve common configuration errors
* RHEL6 systems are again supported
* Reproducibility improvements all around
* Lots of new supported AArch64 boards
* Packages can specify that some CVEs don't apply to them
* `guix pack --relocatable` :-)


* guix manual can now be translated and is partially translated into French
