Hi Alex,

I think some of the items you suggests are tasks that people could start
working on right away, as opposed to long-term deep changes, so I’d
encourage you to submit them as wishlist items to address@hidden.

"Alex Griffin" <address@hidden> skribis:

> ** TODO use guile-bash to automatically update environment variables when the 
> current profile changes

People don’t necessarily use Bash though, but I agree that’s something
like that would be nice, even if that’s just for a specific shell.
That’s something we can already start experimenting with!

> ** TODO run-time configuration system for services, similar to OpenWrt's UCI

What does it mean?  (I don’t know UCI.)

> * Command Line Interface
> ** TODO refresh able to take a contributor name and find out-of-date packages 
> that they have contributed to
> ** TODO improved search: support AND terms instead of OR, configurable recfmt 
> template

“And” is now the default.  A configurable rec template would be nice,
but it could also be hard to use and thus not very much used; anyway,
we’d need to discuss this in more detail so see what the goal is and how
we can achieve it.

> ** TODO package --show should allow multiple arguments and not require an 
> equal sign

Maybe a ‘guix show’ alias, then?

> * Other
> ** TODO evaluate shepherd service definitions placed somewhere in 
> ~/.guix-profile before evaluating ~/.config/shepherd/init.scm


> ** TODO support automatic GPG/signify signature verification of origin objects

For users or for packagers?
