<davexunit>I'm just waking up, running an F-Droid workshop in an hour.
<davexunit>civodul: I've been thinking about 'guix environment' more and if I should take the approach that 'nix shell' takes, which is create a derivation of a given package and set the necessary environment variables. What I'm doing now is taking direct inputs from a package and creating a profile, which has the limitation of not including the implicit inputs from a package's build system.
<mark_weaver>if you're going to run it that frequently, it might be better to just leave a shell script running that does it in a loop with 'sleep' in between runs. that would avoid running two at the same time.
<Tsyesika>you just need to make sure all packages are reviewed (easier said than done)
<davexunit>DusXMT: patches are reviewed quite well. we could make a mistake, but it would be easy to fix.
<DusXMT>I mean, I got my favorite document editor, text editor, and PDF viewer into upstream with almost no effort (well, getting Abiword to build was actually quite a pain), someone could do the same for a malware package that appears harmless on the surface
<Tsyesika>DusXMT: did people review? i suspect they did right?
<Tsyesika>it was probably painless as they looked over it and saw you weren't doing anything malicious
