Thanks for your answer, I'll check that.

I finally went for the branching strategy, hence my patch frenzy trying
to sort everything I wrote in well-ordered branches in one repo. Takes
some time but I'll close to that.

Thanks for the advice. Not an IRC user for now, maybe I will come

Is there a requirement to help with patch reviewing? I feel I can tackle
python or rust packages unless they are weird, I need not to spend too
much time on that, but if it's just advising new beginners (I'm myself
a 9 month old Guix user but went cold turkey on my main machine, while
my first patches were a nightmare, now I hope/believe they are quite
clean) or trying to patch and build locally for <1h a day, with
proper guidelines I might be able to help here.

Best regards,
Nicolas Graves
