<rekado>PurpleSym1: there’s a weird test failure in tests/crate.scm, and a few in tests/import-utils.scm that are complaining about the changed list of keyword arguments. Will address those in a new commit. <rekado>and I’ll take care of this car/cadr vs values thing <rekado>the crate error is due to the fact that version restrictions are now broken in the recursive importer <rekado>same problem with the gem tests, which is good <rekado>wouldn’t want to debug this purely based on the rust importer :) <PurpleSym1>Didn’t know about SRFI-71. Looks like object unpacking in other languages. <rekado>I think the problem is in recursive-import passing on “rest”, but not “version”. <rekado>srfi-71 is really quite refreshing compared to let*-values or receive or call-with-values. <PurpleSym1>From my understanding rest should contain every keyword argument. <rekado>right, the problem was that lookup-node was called with a version argument that didn’t get passed down. Instead the #:version from “rest” was passed. <rekado>so inside lookup-node I’m cutting that one out and replace it with lookup-node’s version value. <rekado>I think commit a274a6a1acb99738f02de7b226e6a0d3883ec353 broke a bunch of things <rekado>I’m a little annoyed by these kind of wide-reaching changes. <rekado>what good are these changes when they break all updaters? <rekado>didn’t find it when searching issues. <PurpleSym1>I searched for author:hartmut, because I’d seen the issue, but couldn’t find it either. <PurpleSym1>That being said, having something like “Closes: #12345” in the commit message to cross-reference the discussion would help. <drakonis>have tried and i find it to work too well <drakonis>so much that it solved the biggest issues with nixos for newcomers <drakonis>also makes it easier to actually deal with things that do not mesh well with getting patched <nckx>That's all valid, it's just an alien world to me. <nckx>Something you might now: someone asked earlier if it's possible to guix-install.sh on NixOS. I don't know. E.g., I'd expect their /etc/systemd not to be writable, but maybe it is? <nckx>s/writable/persistent/ — worse.
