maintenance.git and its cgit interface is not it's not intended as a
"site substitute", it's an anchive where Guix developers share common
work in the community

...anyway, for each media-like file there is a "plain" labelled link
near the blob code, right above the table with hex and ascii code of the

yes, the rationale to include or ignore media artifacts is not clear to
me: I'd include only sources, publishing artifacts on a dedicated static
web page... or move talks out from maintenance.git to a dedicated git
repo like guix/talks.git (like the existing guix/videos.git), publishing
them to the web
