Not a rule of thumb or anything, just sharing my way.
As I don't need any specific update or commits I usually use just `guix pull
commit=...` to update and pick a commit from around 24h ago. Unless
there has been significant changes I end up building very few packages
if any at all. (not using ungoogled-chromium)
