Hi Olivier,

Olivier Dion via 写道:
I would like to use guix as a native-inputs for a package.

As ( implies, it's a strange thing to do. There might be a better solution to whatever your unspecified problem is.

Is there any issue with that?

Only that the ‘guix’ package in guix is older than the guix that contains it (the Guix which is building your package). If you run ‘(file-append #$guix "/bin/guix") shell FOO’ in the build environment, it might provide an older version of FOO than you'd get if you specified FOO as an input directly.

If you're using it in a test suite, that might not be a problem.

Kind regards,
