<PurpleSym>The environment.scm is not working for me, unless I change guile-syntax-highlighting into guile-syntax-highlight <zimoun>PurpleSym: I do not think guile-syntax-highlighting is/was the name of a Guix package. <zimoun>Or maybe it was long time; but ’git log --oneline | grep guile-syntax-highlighting’ returns nothing. <zimoun>Well, I do not know what is the context. :-) <civodul>PurpleSym: thanks! i'll check that environment.scm <civodul>otherwise "guix shell -D hpcguix-web" should work <PurpleSym>Oh, I did not realize we had a package in Guix proper. <rekado>I wonder if r-build-system has a problem <rekado>I just built simplermarkdown after patching its references to pandoc <rekado>but the resulting package has no reference to the pandoc package <rekado>none of the source files I patched made it to the output <rekado>there’s just and rdx and rdb file, but they are gzipped. <rekado>I worry that other packages that we’ve patched with references to the store won’t prevent the GC from collecting their dependencies. <zimoun>civodul: oh thanks for the quick fix about git-download and SWH. <civodul>zimoun: now we'll have to check whether it actually fixes the CRLF issue :-) <zimoun>The patch somehow reads (invoke "git" "clone" …) which means to have the plain git-minimal instead of libgit2, right? If yes, why? <civodul>git-minimal is already what's used in that file <zimoun>yep, I have seen. :-) Do you remember why? <zimoun>My attention had never been attracted by that. :-) <zimoun>Because plain Git allows some features for clone that libgit2 does not implement as shallow. <civodul>it's just that it was easier to implement and yeah, shallow clones are nice <civodul>we don't need tight integration in this context, so less of an incentive to use Guile-Git <civodul>(it's very different from the channel code from that perspective) <zimoun>ok, thanks for the explanations. <zimoun>civodul: test done and fix works. Cool! But it will be unpractical at scale. Well, let discuss with SWH folks. :-) <zimoun>well, the cooking is already slow for some cases, and here it is much much slower – that’s for the inconvient part. <civodul>oh didn't know it would be slower than the "flat" thing <civodul>long ago they offered to pre-cook revisions that correspond to Git tags <zimoun>For the impractical part, well, I am doubtful it will work for large repository with many files and with a large history too. <civodul>or revisions that we refer to in packages.json <civodul>ah true, getting a copy of the whole repo can be a problem <civodul>if it's just CR/LF, we can just as well implement it ourselves? <zimoun>I think the best approach is try flat and fallback to git-bare <zimoun>A checksum would be necessary in the download part. <zimoun>Well, for now it is only CR/LF so yeah maybe fix that ourself could be an option. Applying .gitattributes if any. <zimoun>civodul: let me know what you think about v2 of #61910 :-) <civodul>rekado, PurpleSym: do you have a public instance of Cuirass and/or 'guix publish' at your institute? <civodul>i'm trying to document practices in this area <civodul>PurpleSym: so you're not using Cuirass, right? <PurpleSym>civodul: Nope, for what we do we don’t need CI, just the pre-built substitutes. <civodul>ok, and you build the relevant packages "manually" more or less? <civodul>or maybe that's triggered by psychnotebook usage? <PurpleSym>And everything else comes from Guix’ substitute servers. <PurpleSym>Nowadays guix weather chokes on the manifest though ☹️ <PurpleSym>So I’m also running a script to bake nars – one by one – in a tmux pane 🤦♂️ <PurpleSym>Not sure, but it seems to ignore guix-cran entirely for some reason. <PurpleSym>(I think guix build does too, not just guix weather) <PurpleSym>Maybe I should switch to cuirass when I move to a bigger server… That server currently shuts down when I try to install Guix though. Very weird. <civodul>efraim: apparently it's running Laminar, but do you know more? is there a public "guix publish" instance as well? <civodul>the goal is to make something approachable by sysadmins not familiar with Guix so they get a feel of what can be done <civodul>so you could think of it as the Guix take on that topic <zimoun>civodul: hum, I probably messed up something somewhere… about #61343 (channels and guix repl) <zimoun>because 1. the patch is fixing “guix repl” and not “guix repl script.scm”. <zimoun>and 2. (current-profile) does not seem to do the correct. <zimoun>Messed something because I am sure to have run the test in the patch! Anyway.
