I just wanted to drop a quick note on the guix deploy work carried out
by Jakob.

I've started using it to manage servers, and it seems to work an
absolute charm.  Congratulations to all involved.

I did hit the following small stumbling blocks:

- When first running guix deploy it complained about a missing
  /etc/guix/signing-key.sec.  I fairly quickly realised that deploy
  probably used archive infrastructure, so figured out how to generate
  the keys.  But maybe the manual should contain a line about this?

- The machine-ssh-configuration allows for the specification of users
  other than root, but my understanding is that only root will allow for
  a successful deployment (because root is required to actually
  reconfigure the target system).  I don't know what conclusions to draw
  from this, as I'm not 100% on the roadmap for development.  But maybe
  for now, this could be a gotcha for new users.

Best wishes,
