Hi David,

"Thompson, David" <address@hidden> skribis:

Could you clarify a bit what that would mean?

Yup!  I haven’t forgotten about your proposal at:

Is it something akin to ‘remote-eval’ and ‘container-eval’?

I guess it boils down to making packages “smaller”, possibly using
multiple outputs and generally paying attention to what ‘guix size’

Makes sense to me.
