Hi Ludo,

Thank you. That makes sense. I know that a channel is not really
"intended" for this, but I was stretching it to see what I could make it
do as far as a "whole system configuration" that I could pull and
install using just a single repository without submodules.

I believe you are right, this isn't in the realm of possibility for a
channel to be used like this. I wonder there is a way to
get guix to ignore specific files with the .scm extension.


Thank you for your help.
