If you have made git commits out of your changes, you can do `guix pull
 --url=/your/guix/checkout`.  Otherwise you can use the './pre-inst-env'
 script, as described in the link above.

"./pre-inst-env guix system reconfigure my-config.scm" will create a new
system generation using only code from the git repository.
