The PlatformIO core is simply a pypi Python package, but it requires udev rules in order to communicate with the embedded devices.
I see that several Guix packages modify udev rules, for example libsigrok. Do these udev modifications work when using Guix on a foreign distro or do they only work when using Guix System?
Is simply installing the package enough to modify the udev rules or do they also need to be separately specified in the Guix System configuration?
When creating a new package that needs udev rules, is it better to create two packages, one for the rules and another for the package that require the rules, with one depending on the other? Or is it better to just create a single package with the udev modifications specified under arguments?
