Hey, do you just want to pull, say, from your own channel, but not Guix'
default?  This is something I just figured out a couple of days ago!

One way, and this is only one possibility, is to modify your
channels.scm in such a way that you directly pin your channels to the
commit, or if necessary, a branch, and basically pull whatever you want
to get your newest fix.

This is how my channels.scm more or less looks like at the moment:
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(use-modules (guix ci))
(list (channel-with-substitutes-available
  (name 'guix)
  (url "";)
  ;; (branch "master")
  (commit "a8dd285d5a0670abf124a721e6ba94da045b24ba")
     "BBB0 2DDF 2CEA F6A8 0D1D  E643 A2A0 6DF2 A33A 54FA"))))
  (name 'hacks)
  (url "";)
  (branch "master")
  (commit "e3fd7d9e4aa541f63133c4678f316b5239364c34")))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Be aware, that the downside is that anytime you want to go further, you
have to comment things out again, or go back to the default definition. 

Kind regards
