I do not understand how args work. Is this documented somewhere?

Also I do not understand this form:

(define (guix-describe . args)
What is the role of the dot?

The dot serve as a separator between 'required' argument and 'rest' arguments which is always a list that might be empty.
In the above case everything passed to the procedure guix-describe is considered part of args.
