Nix doesn't commit to offer only free software, for one.

The policy for GNU Guix is that of the GNU Free Software Distribution
Guidelines (FSDG) [0].  We also typically do the utmost to fully
bootstrap things from sources, compared to other distributions.

Its seems the issues raised by Jelle are blocking progress on this
package submission.  Babel seems a complicated piece of software that
will take some effort to get packaged in Guix.

I'll close this ticket as it is not actionable and probably won't be in
the near future.

Please resubmit when the missing packages to fully build from sources
have been added.

Thank you!
