<civodul>the "Tier 1" and "Tier 2" supercomputer folks in .fr: first one says they use Spack to generate modules, second one says they do things by hand but plan to use Spack and also generate containers with it (?)
<zimoun>I was using Conda in PDE/Linear Algebra stuff before because it was super easy to get a Python environment (Scipy & co.) and easy to share. But it was before I see the light. :-)
<zimoun>One really cool feature Guix provide is: “guix pack -f docker” and then the Docker image contains the profile/manifest so even this opaque blob is not and one can reproduce it without the initial Guix material
<zimoun>“docker export” to tarball and then it is easy to extract the profile/manifest.
<zimoun>The missing piece is a converter from profile/manifest to manifest.scm+channels.scm
<civodul>yeah, people asked me about that again recently
