I can't find the older discussions. Which are the problems regarding
license compatibility you see here?

Unfortunately I can't find it either, but I remember that this discussed. Sorry
about not being able to come up with more details.

The two things that came up was:
1. the manual is under GNU FDL, but as long as the videos are not considered
deriving from the manual, this should not be a problem.
2. can the videos have a separate license from the code that they are critically
dependent on? - believe yes.
So all in all, I believe that the license choices you made make sense, and iirc
I proposed exactly the same set of licenses on that older thread, which I will
try to find. It is well possible that it was discussed on irc.

I would like to see this fixed soon, the idea of having source code in
Guix' repositories that is only open-sourced but not free software
annoys me.


Yes, I agree, it would be great to fix this soon.
