Hi Jakub,

> This patch adds quite a few old versions of RGBDS. The project has quite
> a history of small, possibly accidental breaking changes. As a
> measurement of the necessity of this many different versions, I looked
> into the git history of the Game Boy homebrew project that inspired this
> addition.
> The repository (which is unfortunately private) goes back to the days
> of 0.2.5, and for almost all versions in that time range, there exists
> a git commit that requires it.
> I am on the fence on including versions 0.3.4 and 0.3.6. Their changelog
> on GitHub was updated to warn of silent bugs with miscompilation
> potential, and are what the 'almost' above accounts for ;)
> I decided to omit them in the patch, hoping that this will prevent a
> lost soul or two from tripping over those dangerous (in terms of
> potential time loss) bugs.
> I did not include versions 0.1.0 and 0.1.1, as they fail to compile and
> I have no idea why.
> This is my first patch for guix-past, so any review remarks specific to
> pastraising are very much appreciated :)

Nothing to say, this LGTM, nice work!

You should now have a account.  We need to add you to
‘.guix-authorizations’; will you use the same OpenPGP key as in Guix?
