Hey Chris,

It's a great project, I've been checking the schematics and stuff myself and I 
liked it a lot. It's a great reference design to build on top of.
I can't afford one atm but I can do my best to help you play with it.
I'm really interested on if it's able to run Guix and I'd like to know about 
your experience with it.

Please keep me posted on your journey!
