Well, let me describe my workflow -- and I do not know if it the correct one.

I use 'manifest', 'profile' and "guix environment".  For each project
I am working on, I have dedicated folder containing the code, doc and
other files useful for the very project.  In this folder, I add a
manifest file [1] tracking the tools that the project needs.  From
this manifest, I instantiate a profile in the project folder.  And I
track the channel too to be able to reproduce elsewhere and elsetime.
Time to time, I spawn an environment with the manifest to do some
checks.  Well, basically, the CLI looks like:

   cd /path/to/project
   edit manifest.scm
   guix package -m manifest.scm -p profile
   guix describe -f channels > channels.scm
   git add manifest.scm channels.scm
   git commit -am

   eval $(guix package --search-paths=prefix -p profile)

   guix environment -m manifest --ad-hoc python-other-tools

   guix time-machine -C channels.scm -- environment -m manifest.scm

Last, when a package is missing, I use "guix import pypi -r name".  If
the package is correctly packaged on the PyPI side, it is almost done.
To be concrete, again in the project folder:

   guix import pypi -r astropy > pkgs.scm
   edit pkgs.scm # add define-module etc.
   guix show -L . python-astropy
   edit pkgs.scm # add missing import
   guix show -L . python-astropy # works!

   guix build -L . python-astropy

Well, and then the "hard" packaging job starts. :-)
Find attached 'pkgs.scm' still failing to build but maybe a starting point.

Hope that helps,
