Yes, my understanding is that the user "guix" would also work.

I think it would be fine to use the user "guix" instead of
"".  Perhaps it would have the added benefit of
eliminating any possible risk of accidentally spamming the email list,
although so far that hasn't happened.

To give others time to voice their opinion, I'll plan to update the
manual to suggest using the "guix" user about 2 weeks from now.  At that
time, I'll also re-tag the handful of issues currently tagged with the
powerpc64le-linux usertag associated with the user.
