I'll go ahead and link to my os-release service here. It's a small
service that creates an /etc/os-release file. The service in action¹ and
the actual service itself. It would also be possible to create an even
simpler file than the one I made here², with something like this:

(define %inputrc
  (plain-file "inputrc"
              "set show-mode-in-prompt on\n"
              "set enable-bracketed-paste on\n"
              "set editing-mode vi\n"
              "Control-l: clear-screen\n"
              "set bell-style visible\n"))
