As discussed here [1], the Channels is modified to satisfy a more logical
order, at least mine. :-)

The patch 0003 can be hard to review.  Basically, I have moved the sections:

 5.6 Invoking @command{guix pull}
 5.7 Channels
   5.7.1 Specifying Additional Channels
   5.7.2 Using a Custom Guix Channel
   5.7.3 Replicating Guix
   5.7.4 Channel Authentication
   5.7.5 Primary URL
   5.7.6 Writing custom channels
   5.7.7 Package Modules in a Sub-directory
   5.7.8 Declaring Channel Dependencies
   5.7.9 Specifying Channel Authorizations
   5.7.10 Writing Channel News
 5.8 Invoking @command{guix time-machine}

And I did some minor tweaks trying to have user vs developer of channels.  Say
that from 5.7.1 to 5.7.5, the channel are collection of "variants". Then it
becomes "your own channel".

I added these words which deserve a better wording, I guess.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
Last, as a channel author, you may want to run an authenticated channel
(@pxref{Channel Authentication}), then @pxref{Specifying Channel
Authorizations} for details.
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

At the end of the section "Writing custom channels".

And after some thinking, I find better to have "guix pull" and time-machine
visible from Package Management section:

Well, that is a start. :-)


All the best,

  doc: Update the master menu.
  doc: Add the "Channels" section menu.
  doc: Reorder the "Channels" section.
