<efraim>once I figure something out for julia-timezones I have julia-optim ready to upstream
<zimoun>civodul: I am working on the report today. :-)
<efraim>zimoun: Looking more at julia-timezones, it looks like they're considering moving the timezone data to a separate package for 2.0, which should allow us to package it without needing to create 254 source inputs to fix Artifacts.toml
<civodul>hey zimoun, neat!
<civodul>rekado: BTW, congrats on the GWL release! \o/
<zimoun>efraim, cool! 254 is some. :-)
<zimoun>rekado: thanks for GWL \o/
<efraim>I was going to say a dozen or two and then I decided to check
<civodul>hey efraim, do you have anything to add in the Guix-HPC annual report? :-)
<civodul>i'm thinking about Guix-Past maybe?
<efraim>civodul: I'll take a look at it now. Have you pinged pjotr about it also?
<civodul>efraim: yes, Pjotr added the section on RISC-V and a few other things
<efraim>I will note that I'm still unsure between RISCV and RISC-V
<efraim>do we want a link to NSF and NLNET's websites?
<civodul>why not; just make sure there aren't too many links as the PDF rendering would be ugly (due to footnotes) :-)
<efraim>Looking at the guix-past repository it looks like qt@4, openssl-1.0 and some others migrated over
<efraim>I see NLNet gets linked later
<civodul>and you added Python 2.4 this year, no?
*civodul pushed minor tweaks
<efraim>that was apparently the previous year
<efraim>I did fix building it with the core-updates merge, but mostly some old software got migrated/added and some builds got fixed
<efraim>i'm adjusting guix-past to not import (guix) so we can hide the warnings when loading the channel
<civodul>what are the warnings we get?
<efraim>(delete) conflicts with (delete) from guile
<efraim>WARNING: (past packages bioinformatics): imported module (guix) overrides core binding `delete'
<civodul>oh that
<civodul>yeah, makes sense to get rid of them :-)
<efraim>Now I'm looking for guix package: package 'python' has been superseded by 'python2'
<civodul>that must come from (specification->package "python")
<civodul>rather: (specification->package "python@2")
<efraim>hah, python2 is ambiguous, python2@2.7 it is!
<civodul>rekado: should you mention the waste water sequencing paper of your team in the report, under "Articles"?
<rekado>I don’t know. It’s barely related to Guix HPC.
<rekado>I think it doesn’t quite fit in
