Indeed, it appears that Nicolas Goaziou addressed this issue last
December in commit 153b279e7baf1b23d9bb895ea2064faac0ed27c1.

I think that we should welcome reports like this one, even if the
reporter doesn't have the time/energy/skills to first investigate on
their own.  It would be unfortunate if we failed to find out about
spyware in Guix because those who knew about it had insufficient
confidence to file a bug report.

I, for one, appreciate that Bone Baboon brought this to our attention.


Disinformation flourishes because many people care deeply about injustice
but very few check the facts.  Ask me about <>.
