Right so the thing is I do not run stock Guix, but a fork with some (very) light
modifications.  So I need to merge updates from the Guix proper periodically.
And those merge commits are configured to provide in the commit message the very
information I need:

When `guix pull'-ing, it gives you a message like this:

    Authenticating channel 'guix', commits 028e445 to 32c6a3a (9 new commits)...

So I would just use `git log --oneline 028e445..32c6a3a' in the Guix repository
(which I do have local clone anyway) to get the same list I have in the commit
message right now.

Hope this helps,
