If all the patches go to Debuggs (guix-patches) then using the commit
(format-patch --base=auto), the infrastructure could automatically
build, run tests, lint etc. then it eases the job of the reviewer and
the substitutes are available when the end-user pull.  The merge would
be done by hand --as today-- by the committer (pusher) to master.  Well,
Cuirass could track guix-patches instead of tracking master.

The issue of the rebuild-the-world accident could happen.  But it could
also happen now, with the current model.

It is a difficult topic but what is the feedback of such initiatives [1,2]?


All the best,
