I agree that we must keep improving error reporting in general.  Stack
traces are very much on the Guile side of things.

OTOH, due to EDSLs in Guix, there are things where Guile itself will
display what it sees, but what it sees is not quite what you’d like to
see as a Guix hacker.  So here we can probably do better on our side.

I’d encourage you to post specific examples to address@hidden showing
what you get and what you’d like to see.  It’ll be easier to work from
examples that in the abstract.

When do you see “recompiling” messages?

It looks like a bug we could address soonish, not a long-term task.  :-)
