re the Nature article, I think a challenge is to provide evidence that Guix would be “worthy of continued support” as the authors say.
it’s easy to show that for numpy, matplotlib, ggplot, etc, because they are used in countless papers.
Guix on the other hand … not so much.
I also feel that “research software” isn’t quite the right label for Guix, though it would be worth trying anyway.
I'd be worried about people reading "research software" as "alpha" or "experimental software" instead of the intended "research-enabling software".
rekado_, bavier[m]: good points
we have (as always) a chicken-and-egg issue here
