when I look at your:

  config => (guix-configuration
    (inherit config)
(extra-options (list "--gc-keep-derivations=yes" "--gc-keep-outputs=yes"))

Isn't there at the end one bracket too little, to close up the whole thing?

Because when I add that to my config.scm file the first bracket before guix-service-type appears violett in Emacs,
but there is no violet bracket at the end which closes it.

The manual says that it is dangerous to use: "guix gc"

I agree that 'guix gc' deletes too much, but it's probably not
dangerous. You will just see some downloads and builds repeated when
reconfiguring later.

I believe 'guix gc' deletes items that are not garbage to me (but I am
new to Guix). Based on friendly advice I received, I currently use
these settings:
