thank you very much Hubert for your report: errors like the one you
found (packages build failures) are bugs, next time please report them
to; better to close a non-bug than to miss an actual
one ;-)

As you can see I've now filed a new bug: bug#63551

Thank you also to Vagrant and Denis for the heads up, please submit
further comments or patches to

Please do not wait for an official upstream "release" (git tag,
actually) for cpp-mustache, I guess upstream just forgot to tag it: Guix
is full of "not officially" released or properly tagged packages,
sources are often taken from carefully selected git commits (I've
recently proposed a patch for dia, that is in a very similar situation)

Since commit 4ed8c0b is setting version to 5.0.0 and that version works
(does it?), I'd go for an "update to 5.0.0" patch

My two cents.


Happy hacking! Gio'
