Hi all,

I've noticed that the GNU Standards indicate [] should be used for
conditional changes, and <> should be used for identifying the part that
changed.  However, in Guix, I've noticed that people tend to use [] not
to indicate conditional changes, but rather to indicate the part that
changed.  Is there a reason for this?  Does it matter?

Relevant sections in the GNU Standards are:

(standards) Conditional Changes

(standards) Indicating the Part Changed

Thank you,
