Guix in Debian!

So, a while back I mentioned that Guix was present in Debian

And it was useable for a brief window of time, but was broken due to
some issues with guile-gnutls and guile-3.0:

Somewhat deterred, I back-burnered it for a while while I focused on
other things...

Just a few days ago, I decided to attempt to get Guix into Debian's next
release, and went with the fallback plan of building it against
guile-2.2, and a few disabled tests later...

If all goes well, it should migrate to "bullseye" in a few
days. Hopefully in a few months "bullseye" will become Debian's stable
release shipping with guix! Presumeably Guix will also eventually find
itself in Ubuntu and other Debian derivatives...

Now on Debian you should be able to:

  apt install guix
  guix install dpkg
  guix environment --ad-hoc dpkg -- dpkg -i ./guix_1.2.0-3_amd64.deb

It is almost like symmetry!

Thanks for all the help and encouragement along the way, everyone!

live well,
