Dear maintainers,

Today I received an email by Brenton Horne about another Flatpack like package manager by the GNU Project called "guix" [1], which I did not know before.

GNU Guix is able to provide the recent stable version of Octave [2] in a fashion similar to Flatpack:

   guix package -i octave

Personally, I would support this, but I did not get it to run yet (my distro openSUSE 15.0 only partially supports GNU Guix.  The required service deamons and directories have to be configured manually, or I did something wrong...

The question is, if we advertise this project as alternative to Flatpack on the website [3]. Any thoughts, objections?
