While my time can sometimes be a little spotty short-term, I am willing to 
coordinate work on Emacs-Guix and at least protect it from bitrot. Right now, 
I'm still fairly new to Emacs and am still working on my setup and learning & 
integrating things like using Emacs-Guix or M-x debbugs-gnu, but I also wish to 
both get more involved with Guix and improve my Emacs development and debugging 
skills. I'll also be happy to push those four commits once I work out my local 
build and testing (i.e. getting the tests to pass locally with a clean tree to 
see if my cherry-picking of the commits are the reason tests are failing.)

I really need to try that out! :)
