You should 'guix pull'; it was updated yesterday.  Now there's only one
client package, 'jami'.

You can run it via 'guix shell jami -- jami' to try it out, or install

I'd suggest getting to know jami itself before venturing into
jami-service-type.  You can already make calls and add more users
manually to get started.

When you want some permanent channel that people can call and join
automatically, jami-service-type will provide value.
