[bug#56859] [PATCH] gnu: xdg-desktop-portal-wlr: Change elogind to basu

Subject: [bug#56859] [PATCH] gnu: xdg-desktop-portal-wlr: Change elogind to basu for sd-bus.

User-agent: mu4e 1.6.11; emacs 29.0.50


Regarding switching, I don't think it is very straight forward
to switch elogind with basu. Issue is that elogind "also" includes
sd-bus. Dependents may require either sd-bus and/or other parts
of elogind. Those who require sd-bus only to interface with bus
could be switched to basu gradually. Most likely this will be
suitable for "minimalist" applications.

I.e. basu is a drop-in replacement for those require sd-bus only,
but not whole elogind.

Thanks in advance,

Fewer dependencies (we include only the sd-bus library without the whole of elogind), and it means eventually desktop users won't ever need

That's interesting but sounds very non-specific to
xdg-desktop-portal-wlr; I think this would be better to propose on guix-devel@ to switch elogind->basu for _all_ dependents, not only xdg-desktop-portal-wlr -- the latter would increate the closure, not reduce it, because other installed packages would still use elogind.

Additionally, the reason should have been mentioned in the commit message.
