What did you think of having ‘--log-file’ transparently fall back to
searching for log files on substitute servers?

I find it handy, but also wondered if it might surprise users that such
a trivially-looking option connects to external servers.

It would pleasantly surprise me :-)

(...well, not really ‘surprise’ — just more Guixy network-transparent goodness.)

TBH, I don't see the difference between this & all other actions that already connect to external servers.

Is this different? Will it ignore ’--no-substitutes’, or ping servers outside of user-approved substitute-urls? Does it need to?

I thought about having it print something when it does so.

Like a progress bar? Seems more eye-catching than yet another warning. Or something more permanent in/next to the downloaded log?

Kind regards,
