OK, I understand Vagrant's concerns: we need a _namespaced_ URI, but
there is no need that URI is the URL of **one** of our current web
interfaces, why not the other one? ;-)

IMO this is an implementation detail we can easily fix once we find a
consensus on introducing this requirement in the Guix guidelines on

I agree that an (optional) bug description might be useful (could also
be automatically added by some cool etc/committer.scm funcion?)

I propose:

 Fixes: [optional bug description] <namespace:#bug-number>

where namespace is the package name, in our case "guix"; fo example:

 Fixes: Emacs hangs when I press a key <guix:#123456789>
