Sorry, I did not imply that people I talked to meant github or
other free/proprietary solutions similar to it.
So far I provide outside of and outside of Email
federation help and support to a small number of people at (and also offer to proxy works via myself for people
who can not deal with the ways you can participate in Guix).

An Email vs Github discussion is not even close to what my
