Thank you for continuing the work. I was not making any progress on the
tests and was caught up with other work.

I agree we should merge this now and fix the tests later.

Ok, that should be enough for now.

Is this a good idea? I always thought we go the Debian way and try to
document every single license. I would love it if we only had to
document the "main license" but I'm not sure that is consistent with how
other Guix packages are written. Thoughts?
