I added "evolution-data-server" to my list of packages in my home configuration 
and got an error while trying to reconfigure:

Loading /gnu/store/2hwp7i1xn24rlsnwmcc8hpbdynznv4an-shepherd.conf.
herd: error: exception caught while executing 'load' on service 'root':

Evaluating on-change gexps.

On-change gexps evaluation finished.

I installed it manually with `guix install`. I get a new error in Evolution.

This should really be fixed...

Sorry if I'm being overly critical. I come from Fedora, where things are 
heavily polished.
