Hello Guix!

Attached the notes from the "Bootstrap what's next" session yesterday.


- Branch wip-arm-bootstrap is getting ready but stuck at glibc-mesboot0,
  when finished: release mes-0.23.

- Branch wip-full-source-bootstrap is ready for review; wait with merge
  until wip-arm-bootstrap?  When finished, relase mes-0.24.

- Support for PowerPC and RISC-V

- Submitting a GSOC proposal to have a student help out with some of the
  problems ^^

- Building for PowerPC isn't straightforward. You'd need actual h/w to
  test things out.

- Making the guix build system code less dependent on Guile and more
  dependent on MES

- PowerPC
 + Glibc+GCC version combination during bootstrap is problematic on PowerPC.
 + Glibc changes introduces uncertainty.
 + Branch with bootstrap binaries is ready for merging:
