<rekado_>kadintrooper: we have a package for pdf-tools.
<rekado_>just install that instead of building pdf-tools yourself.
<Apteryx>Observation: When I rebase my guix branch on top of origin/master, and run "guix environment guix", Guile recompiles the modified source files (it takes some time) and prints notes like "note: source file /home/maxim/.config/guix/latest/gnu/packages/xnee.scm".
<Apteryx>Question: Why do successive "guix environment guix" seems to recompile everything again? I thought Guile was caching the compiled versions in my home dir.
<Apteryx>I know the actual fix for this is to run "make", I'm just curious as to why the "JIT" compiled .go files cannot be re-used instead of being recompiled at each "guix environment" invocation.
<rekado_>Apteryx: when you rebase the timestamps change
<efraim>the online manpages are from different ages and versions, i found 'there is no multithreading' and 'we have multithreaded packing but not unpacking'
<lfam>efraim: I tried it and threaded decompression is not supported yet. It does seem to be planned, however
<efraim>the compressing would be nice, compressing the tarballs after patching them seems to take forever
<lfam>Once I build up to `tar` with my patch, I can benchmark it
<lfam>I guess I need to start over with 'cvf', though :(
<Apteryx>Q: By what mechanism do Guix make emacs packages visible to Emacs? I've packaged some emacs software but it doesn't seem to be picked up. The .elc files are under: /gnu/store/clv8k6n8j6pgf0jy3sl747zp6n2falwb-emacs-dvc-1.0.0/share/emacs/site-lisp/dvc/.
<lfam>efraim: Also, I found a way to check if an xz archive was created with multiple threads. Use `xz --list foo.xz`. If the "Blocks" column is greater than 1, bingo
<lfam>"From a whole industry perspective code reviews are still at the "alpha" stage. They can produce spectacular but isolated results. In very many cases, code reviews crash, randomly reboot, are delivered late and incomplete while requiring overtime." Haha

<catonano>Apteryx: did you install such emacs packages ? Or did you ust create them ?
<catonano>Apteryx: if you installed them, you should find them at
