<PurpleSym>A user is asking whether it is possible to transform renv lockfiles into Guix manifests. Has anyone looked into that yet?
<PurpleSym>The difficulty I see is that renv.lock specifies not only the package(s), but also their version(s) and thus we’d have to find a Guix revision, which contains exactly these version(s).
<mbakke>PurpleSym: does it also contain a source checksum? then you could generate packages that inherit from the Guix variants, using the version and source from renv
<PurpleSym>mbakke: Yes, but it looks like MD5.
<PurpleSym>I guess I could just `guix import cran <package>@<version>` all packages and pray the importer works fine.
