Hi Ludo,

yes, saw it, but I wasn’t sure how to load modules from that directory. And I
agree, it’s not pretty, but probably better than option 3, because everything
is in the store.

I feel this might be the best option and I’ll give it a try.

Okay, I can see that, but I’d like to use the same list of channels in that
service and channels.scm. Since creating an etc-service for
/etc/guix/channels.scm does not work, I was left with the other option, i.e.
using that file for unattended upgrades. Are there any other options?
