So in the channel definition using a local directory what would the syntax be 
instead of the “(url…” bit?

So what would the recommended workflow be, with a git checkout on top of GuixSD?

— Only use “guix pull, guix package -u, and guix system reconfigure” for GuixSD 
for root to have the base system up-to-date?
 — Don't use “guix pull” as regular user for GuixSD, but install user packages 
from the git?
 — In git use “./configure --localstatedir=/var; make; make install”? Also 
“make install”?
 — Then to install packages use “./pre-inst-env guix install”?
