Hello Arun!

Too bad I missed the event on Saturday.

This is really nice.  I like the idea of having easy deployment through
a Guix service, and of composing existing tools.  (It’d even be worth a
blog post, hint hint ;-))

Neat.  I wonder if there could be a more Guiley flavor of guix-forge,
for instance with Gitile instead of Cgit and mumi instead of
public-inbox (though these two are not quite equivalent).

Thanks for sharing!
