No, but there probably should be one.

So I'd like to resurrect my slightly clunky but somewhat working
Patchwork + Laminar + Git repo + Guix Data Service (+ Cuirass?) setup
for testing patches.

Here, the Guix Data Service would process the Guix revision with the
patches under test having been applied. This would reveal the lint
warning changes. It would also reveal the new derivations, which can be
built to check what the effect of the patches are.

So the only documentation currently is the README file, which is
available at . I haven't considered
writing standalone documentation yet, but I have been considering
incorporating more in to the web interface.

Is there a specific thing you're interested in/unsure about?
