What remains to be done is mostly (1) ensuring that there’s no
significant regression in terms of build failures compared to ‘master’,
and (2) making sure GuixSD boots and works fine.

For #1, a simple test is to try and upgrade your profile and see if
everything builds and works well.  In addition, you can look at these
dashboards to identify build failures that need to be addressed:

For #2, running “make check-system”, or at least the inexpensive subset
of system tests (the expensive tests are the installation tests) should
give a good overview—Mark already reported an issue at
<>.  The next step of course is to
try it on the bare metal for your own system config.

If we all do our share of testing, this can actually be pretty fast.
If today is a rainy day, here’s a good activity for you!  :-)
