The script is nice because it just works! :-)

As a newcomer, I find it lacks an optional installation of default
packages in the default profiles.
I have in mind: nss-certs, recutils, emacs (or info), glibc-locales.

Then, "Run 'info guix' to read the manual." does not work.
Because the command info is not installed by default on all the distributions.

And the Guix manual does not seem installed by default. Am I doing wrong?

I used the installer here on parabola and I found this (with 'locate'):

the manual was found both in the store in a profile (not my current) and in /usr/local/share/info/

After adjusting my infopath to this it worked like a charm:
export INFOPATH="/home/sdb/.guix-profile/share/info:/usr/local/share/info${INFOPATH:+:}$INFOPATH"
