Thank you for your message Eric.

I do not have the knowledge to hack on Guix much...yet. And by now you
can probably can see I have no application or project.

I was just thinking that it might be interesting or useful for Guix. And
that we could make a proposal to the university that may be advantageous
to both the Guix project and to them. If you have any proposals, I could
tell them about it.
