The file ~/.guix-profile/etc/profile only contains


It only exports the $PATH. Am I meant to make manual adjustments to this file
or is it managed by Guix as well? And while I'm at it, what is the way of
sourcing the bash completions installed by Guix?

    for f in $(ls /home/aleksandar/.guix-profile/etc/bash_completion.d/); do
        source $f       

And how do I get bash completion for Guix itself? It is not contained in the
above directory.
