I think the main problem is that some of the 0.10.0 binaries have
vanished from {mirror.,}  Thus, people installing GuixSD
for the first time today have a very bad experience.

We can rebuild the ‘release-0-10’ branch on Hydra, but of course we’re
limited by the available resources.

At any rate, Ethan: I think we’ll make a 0.10.1 release once we’ve merge
‘core-updates’, which could be a week or two from now.
