Yeah, I share this sentiment.

Maxim and I briefly discussed this on IRC and concluded we should have a
‘core-packages’ team for basically base.scm and commencement.scm (the
‘bootstrap’ team should be co-responsible for commencement.scm), and
maybe also guile.scm.

With that in mind, ‘core-updates’ would effectively become the branch of
the ‘core-packages’ team: the branch where we update packages in these
files (primarily the toolchain and Guile), perhaps also (guix build
utils), and that’s all.

How does that sound?
