Hey Edison,

One easy way to do this is to just put your package definition in config.scm, above your operating system definition. I haven't tried it with a shell, but the basic idea would be to have something like this:

(define-public xonsh
 ... your package definition ...)

 ... other bits ...
 (users (cons (user-account
               ... other bits ...
               (shell (file-append xonsh "/bin/xonsh")))
 ... other bits ...)

Another way to do it would be to submit a patch updating xonsh to be included in Guix, which would also benefit all other Guix users.

I currently use xonsh as my user's shell, but the default version in

I wrote a file to install the latest version of this package but I
   cannot set this version as my user's default shell.

There is a way to update xonsh in the config.scm file to the latest
   available version.

   Thank you
