Figured I might as well add my experiences.

I originally have done the same thing as you did Ellen.  This was a bit
of a slow process for deploying Guix to Hetzner servers though.

Now I use a different approach: deploy a debian server then use a
guix-infect style script (gleaned from the guix deploy code for digital

So I deploy debian, then copy across a script and run that.  This takes
care of turning the debian machine into a guix machine and deploys my
