How about a scenario like this, all done from within emacs-guix running
against a git checkout ...

- find a package

- install it

- observe how it is working

- consider changing a config flag

- 'M-x Guix edit <package>'

- download the source: 'C-u . s'

I didn't kknow this one !

- copy the package source out of the store (there is probably a better
  thing to do here)

- in <package> source: './configure --help' to see config options

- 'M-x Guix edit <package>' & modify #:configure-flags

I think you can't modify a package in place. In fact, with guix edit it gets open as ead only

As far as I understand, you should clone it locally, edit the copy in that clone, build it, install it with ./pre-inst-env in that clone

If that's not too pettifogging for you, i could try

I'd also appreciate if you would suggest a package to del with, in this hypotetical footage

- build the package: 'C-u . b'

This one, for example, would require you to run the emacs-guix facilities on a local clone and I don't know how to do that

I remember Ludo doing this in a footage but I could use a reminder.

Thanks again
