I just installed guix system for the first time, and it was on a vps. I have two questions:

1. Is there a way to configure openssh without doing irrelevant stuff? I wanted to disable password login, and here's what I did:
  1. use `guix system describe` to get the current config file
  2. copy the config file somewhere and open it
3. add one line inside openssh-configuration (password-authentication? #f)
  4. run `guix system reconfigure` on the file
It took 1m13s, downloading 52MB packages (guix, guix-artwork, locale,...), applying numerous grafts and building numerous drvs. 2. All the packages have been downloaded from, which is not very fast sometimes as the vps is located in Australia. "Normal" popular GNU/Linux distros often come with an official list of mirrors. Is there something similar for guix, i.e. an official list of substitute servers somewhere?
