<ng0>I have switched font-google-noto to font-build-system. I'll go through the module a bit more and see if I can make some more build-system movements
<ng0>(for-each (cut install-file <> (string-append fonts "/webfonts")) (find-files source "\\\\.(css|eot|svg|woff|woff2)$")) the find-files is still correct, or is there some other form I have to take and forgot? This just failed for me.. or at least I assume so. Could also be that the font-build-system doesn't deal very well with scripts being in the source which patch-shebang wants to patch
<ng0>I'll try if this is really the case, deleting the scripts
<ng0>but not recently.. maybe I just need to clean
<efraim>the chromium package posted to guix-patches, is that for core-updates?
<lfam>I'm working a new build system, which is not something I've tried before. I'm looking at the python-build-system for inspiration. Something I don't understand is where PYTHONPATH is created and exported.
<efraim>i think its something special about python
<lfam>Or maybe it's inherited from gnu-build-system and constructed out of search-paths and native-search-paths
<efraim>i finally set up a core-updates folder with git worktree, so far so good with compiling from both directories simultaneously
<efraim>perhaps it is inherited, but I'm pretty sure its a python specific thing, like how until just recently we had vdirsyncer propagated by khal
<efraim>where it doesn't link and pull in dependencies
<pmikkelsen>anyways, I have come to discuss what parts of guix I can contribute to. I am currently in a position with alot of spare time, and I want to spend time on free software that I use. Do you have anything special for me?
<cbaines>pmikkelsen, I think there is loads of potential with Guix, are you interested in any particular areas?
<bavier`>pmikkelsen: our reproducibility efforts could use some more attention, if you're into that sort of thing
<cbaines>pmikkelsen, have you written any Guix packages or services yet, that might be a good place to start if you haven't?
<ng0>open for anything is difficult to give you something.. if you want to give firefox a try, I have that. Or basically everything all across the choice of applications and some webservices etc
<pmikkelsen>I have written a few packages, and I have a couple I want to package at some point
<pmikkelsen>ng0: sorry, I just wanted to say that I didn't have anything special in mind
<cbaines>pmikkelsen, the main thing on my TODO list is getting some more services in, e.g. MongoDB, Elasticsearch, RabbitMQ, ...
<pmikkelsen>Okay, I don't know how services work yet, so I think I will have a look at that, and then come back later if thats allright
<cbaines>one really exciting, but probably difficult thing I think might be possible, is a Kubernetes CNI for Guix. Guix can do single machine stuff really well, and Kubernetes is popular for managing lots of machines together, and writing a CNI (Container Native Interface) would allow them to talk together.
<cbaines>pmikkelsen, looking at services is probably good if you have the time
<cbaines>also, using Guix is a worthwhile thing to do, if you haven't got to that point already
<pmikkelsen>I have been using GuixSD as my primary system for some months now
