Hello Guix!

These patches ensure ‘--localstatedir’ is properly handled by the
Docker and Squashfs backends of ‘guix pack’ (until now they ignored
this option.)

They also add ‘guix pack’ tests, which were severely lacking until now,
including a ‘guix pack -R’ test using the user’s store.  While doing
that, I also fixed a bug whereby ‘guix pack’ tarballs would contain
writable directories (whereas normally every file in the store is

Feedback welcome!


Ludovic Courtès (8):
  pack: Move store database creation to a separate derivation.
  pack: Import (guix store database) only when '--localstatedir' is
  install: Add 'install-database-and-gc-roots'.
  pack: Docker backend now honors '--localstatedir'.
  pack: Squashfs backend now honors '--localstatedir'.
  pack: Add test for 'self-contained-tarball' with localstatedir.
  store-copy: Canonicalize the mtime and permissions of the store copy.
  pack: Add test for '--relocatable'.                    |   1 +
