<mark_weaver>civodul: I'm interested in investigating the possibility of creating bootstrap tarballs from outside of Guix, as an alternative bootstrap method. Do you see a reason why this is infeasible?
<mark_weaver>(my motivation is to avoid creating a single point of trust, e.g. the x86 bootstrap tarballs)
<mark_weaver>remember, the bootstrap tarballs don't have to be identical to the ones Guix creates. They need only be sufficient to use Guix to create a more pristine set of bootstrap tarballs.
