I understand your point. That a Guix user can get source by using that
command that does not dispute anything what I said. Maybe apparently
to the onlooker who does not follow the references I have given.

Did you research references I gave you?

Sure. But how does that dispute the facts I have raised?

Does that documentation then comply to the GPL? It does not.

How about you go through references in the GPL that I gave you and you
tell me how does Guix comply to points I have raised?
