So I've successfully managed to get a Rails app up and running just
using Guix packages, without Bundler, and I think without Rubygems. It
wasn't too difficult, although I still don't fully understand the
relationship between Bundler and Rails.

Once everything is in Guix, I might write a blog post or put up an
example of the "Getting Started with Rails" guide, but using Guix where
appropriate. I'm not sure if this would be appropriate to have on the
Guix blog?

Also, as a more general point, I feel that it would be useful having
some documentation on the packages in Guix, especially for documenting
the individual expected differences when using a package from Guix over
other approaches. I don't know if this is something that would be
appropriate to put in the manual?
