I’m fairly new to the Guix scene, but recently there was a discussion about it
on mailing list. So far it works as designed, because every
time you use guix pull, they have to recompile every package definition.
I’m a complete pleb when it comes to guile development, so take it with a heavy
grain of salt.

You can check for more information in the devel archive:

Hope that helps,
