If you have a local fork with unauthorized commits (for instance, you
made commits yourself and you’re not listed in ‘.guix-authorizations’)
then yes, you have to use ‘--disable-authentication’.

The alternative for you would be to publish an introduction for your
fork, which means you would be able to test which is the first commit to

However, this may be inconvenient for one-off forks where you just want
to test changes.  In that case, ./pre-inst-env probably remains the
preferred approach.
