<sriharsha>thanks; actually, we are using guix for deploying gnunet experiments over wide variety of machines.. so, the quicker I learn this, the quicker we deploy.. besides, this is a fun and functional project :-()
<civodul>if you're not using Geiser, you really should ;-)
<civodul>sriharsha: beware, this part is work in progress!
<mark_weaver>personally, I wouldn't want it to be more automatic than that. because nothing short of A.I. could handle the merges correctly in all cases, and so I want to control when it happens, in case some fixups are needed.
<jmd>That is true. But I like aegis' approach where "branches" really are true branches. Not just parallel lines of development like in git.
<mark_weaver>I'll have to take a closer look at aegis at some point. but not today; I'm too overloaded with Guile work.
<mark_weaver>jmd: sorry, I'm not sure that the GUILE_LOAD_PATH approach will quite work correctly at present.
