I recently migrated from debian to guixsd. I was shocked to see there was 
neither iceweasel nor icedove available. This is frustrating as they are 
commonly used programs on gnu/linux systems.

After a through research, I understood that there are some freedom issues. The 
available patches at parabola seems complicated. Then I came across the 
following in the SearX search:


They both are FSDG compliant and has good security+privacy focus. Can someone 
please package these as soon as possible (I would have done it if I could). 
Will be very useful for other migrators to guix as well.

Look, I understand that you guix people are working hard. To be honest, you 
people have done a great job. The uniqueness of guix is intriguing. At the same 
time, you people have to think about new users as well and understand their 
perspective. I have read some mails in the mail lists. Asking the new users to 
package what they want and suggesting alternative applications; is like 
passively showing middle finger to them. They (including me) have not only have 
to adopt to new environment; also have to work with unfamiliar applications? 
Come on, that's way too much. So please, please consider at least including 
these two apps in guix.


New Guix User.
