Hi Roel,

I’m interested in moving the GWL modules to their own namespace to avoid
potential clashes with future versions of Guix.  Currently, GWL modules
share the “(guix …)” and “(gnu …)” namespaces.

I think it would be clearer to move all but the scripts (which extend
Guix) to “(gwl …)”.

I like this change.  So the new modules would be:
(gwl processes) and (gwl workflows)

Could we keep (guix processes) and (guix workflows) for backwards compatibility? At least for now, so we don't break existing workflows right away.

On a related note: I can never remember if a procedure is defined in
“(gnu workflows)” or “(guix workflows)”.  Do you have a mnemonic?  Is
this separation necessary or would it be fine to rearrange things?

It's fine to rearrange things. I mimic'd the modules for Guix's packages ((guix packages) and (gnu packages)).

Kind regards,
Roel Janssen
