Hi Nicoló,

I have seen your message on IRC.
Cool for the release 1.4.

Could we try to include first this 1.3 one?  Then push the 1.4 if it
is already ready.

Because then, this release will be usable "forever" (or almost ;-)
even if it is not perfect and issues are fixed with the 1.4.
I mean, once a package is inside Guix, then it becomes "easily" usable
with 'guix time-machine' and saved on Software Heritage.
Therefore, considering the big picture of Scientific Reproducibility,
it matters -- for the future to be able to travel back -- to also have
1.3. ;-)

I think we are almost done. From my point of view, we just need to
address (or comment) these 3 points:

> Do you have a special motivation to rename 'llvm-patch' to 'julia-patch'?
> (I agree, it is better :-))

> Well, only 2 inputs are missing. Do you think it is affordable to pack
> them and so remove the commentary?
> --8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
> ;; FIXME: The following inputs are downloaded from upstream to allow us

> ;; would eventually be replaced with proper Guix packages.
> ;; Find dependencies versions here:

> --8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

> Otherwise, there is some issues about indentation -- I think you use
> Emacs, so check that '.dir-locals.el' is correctly setup -- double

> 'patch/julia-SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH-mtime.patch' should be added with the
> same commit that "Update", etc.
> I have half-corrected so I can send you these 2 v2-patches if you want to. :-)

What do you think?
