YW. I believe that the manual documents all the config bits used. I
arrived at it after reading IRC #guix over the last 12 months where it
was described in bits and pieces by others. Quite a while ago I
suggested adding a "how to" along these lines to the guix and emacs-guix
manuals. The response from the developers was lukewarm: 1) adding such a
section to a manual increases the difficulty of maintaining the manual,
and 2) config is a matter of user choice. It could be put in a wiki, but
I hate software wikis because they are usually out of date and therefore
most often wrong. ISTM it might be put into a "guix-ide" package and/or
user service & this would be the best way to make it available to users.
