Sincere thanks to paren, T G-R

I came to this idea because when I check:

 guix pull --news --details

then it shows me the new and updated packages.

And today there was:

guix 1.3.0-32.682639c


icedove-wayland@102.4.1,icedove@102.4.1, keepassxc@2.7.3, komikku@1.2.0, linux-libre-bpf@5.19.17 etc.

When icedove@102.4.1 shows the new version, which can be installed,
so I guessed that the new guix version can also be shown through a command.

I would like to have the numbers... guix 1.3.0-32

Right.  That's what ‘guix --version’ should provide, but it's currently broken:

  λ guix --version
  guix (GNU Guix) 0

You can plug the commit given by ‘guix describe’ (or ‘guix system describe’, which can differ!) into a local Guix git checkout as a horrible work-around:

  λ guix describe
    guix 39e00f7
    commit: 39e00f7f6a0b80e95cf16970d201c786684e076a
  λ git clone
  λ cd guix
  λ git describe 39e00f7f6a0b80e95cf16970d201c786684e076a
  v1.3.0-26871-g39e00f7f6a0 (your ‘32’ was just a bit optimistic  :-)

I'm so sorry, but it technically does ‘work’…

Kind regards,
