<ewemoa>gonz_: didn't know about httpie, thanks for mentioning it :)
<gonz_>ewemoa: Yeah, it really is great. As soon as you have some API that needs checking it's perfect. Or just some testing on your own stuff, because it has such simple and good features that make everything more accessible and visible.
<gonz_>Now, for a short blackout, as I say goodbye to my EC2 instance.
<davexunit>if other distros would package our software, it would help, but we don't abide by the FHS which makes it hard.
<davexunit>so we want an easy binary installer, but we also don't want to say "just run this magic script as root!"
<mthl>the purpose of such page is that people can type commands along and get a simple overview of what the Guix do. But if we have on top of that a link to the manual for installation, it misses the point.
<efraim>you just need to think more creatively, one is a post-install script, then we need a post-remove script to delete the store and the users
<mark_weaver>I'm going to need some help on security updates at some point, though. In particular, someone who cares about qt will have to take care of applying security updates to its bundled libraries.
<mark_weaver>and at this point, I know there are quite a few unpatched CVEs in there.
<mark_weaver>I use guix configured with --no-daemon to build nginx on hydra
<mark_weaver>well, it should already be built, so maybe there's a reasonable short cut.
<rekado_>I'm confused about something: I get a gnutls error when building MISO. The host machine does not have the guile bindings for gnutls installed. However, this only seems to be a problem when a redirection from http to https is followed.
<mark_weaver>but using the pre-built guix in the store doesn't work because it has a different localstatedir
<paron_remote>> Ha! Apparently I spread an article on the initial release of guix to my friends three years ago with the laconic comment “because the existing ten or more package managers just aren't enough”.
<paron_remote>> Yet here I am, subscribed to three guix mailing lists and terribly excited to be reading them all and looking forward to some day maybe finding the time to contribute.
