<rekado>I don’t read Debian packages well, but it looks like it’s not just a blob.
<PurpleSym>So, `guix pull`’ing that new CRAN channel works, but any operation (show, search, build) fails with `Too many root sets, zsh: IOT instruction (core dumped)`. I guess there’s too many packages.
<rekado>that’s a garbage collector thing, isn’t it?
<rekado>so we have to tie this huge bootstrap loop where we build everything with the broken TeX engines first and then build the engines again in an environment that has babel and the hyphenation packages
