I have read the proposal. All in all it looks good to me. One section
that could be
improved is the requirement on the setup. We usually state having guix
installed as
a requirement, even maybe a development setup. As initial contribution
we usually
ask for packaging something simple. We should also have a look at the community
details, like the communication channels, and try to uniformize them
across the proposals.
I will check how it was phrased in the past, see if there is any new
info now, and try to
come up with something.
