<civodul>Hello Guix!
<atheia>Good morning Guix, long time no see :-)
<civodul>hey, howdy atheia!
<civodul>good to see you here :-)
<atheia>Nice to hear — nice to be here :-)
<atheia>Civodul, sounds like another release is imminent? very exciting!
<civodul>once core-updates is merged, i want to polish the installation image
<civodul>and ask people to try it :-)
<atheia>can't wait to give it a spin on real hardware!
<civodul>yeah i think it's cool
<civodul>surely the first tests will look like dog food, but hey ;-)
<atheia>I'm sure they will; but finally a good use for some of my old laptops lying around here…
<civodul>no spare x86_64 laptop, so i end up rebooting when i want to run on the bare metal
<atheia>Oh no — surely that ruins your emacs uptime stats! ;-)
***tschwing_ is now known as tschwinge
<civodul>suggestion of the day: visit and fix your favorite packages :-)
<davexunit>civodul: :)
<davexunit>I'm trying to get notmuch packaged, still. their test suite just gives me so many issues, though.
<civodul>yeah, that's often the most difficult part
<civodul>do you know what the main problems are?
<davexunit>I also want to test the VM image, but having KVM issues. :(
<davexunit>civodul: in particular, one of the tests just freezes
<civodul>it's frustrating when you have to dig in some other package's test suite
<civodul>but then, you have that feeling of relief when you're done ;-)
<davexunit>it's a json utf-8 test. I haven't yet figured out what it's doing to hang.
<davexunit>the test suites uses emacs as well as a program called dtach, that I've also packaged.
<davexunit>so I suspect the problem lies with the interactions with those programs.
<davexunit>is there an ETA on 0.7?
<civodul>davexunit: something like within 2 weeks, i'd say
<davexunit>civodul: thanks. that will help me partition my time appropriately.
<davexunit>I don't want a release to go by where I don't have any commits!
<civodul>ah ah :-)
<civodul>everyone on this channel should have at least 10 commits! ;-)
<davexunit>I'm way behind, then!
<davexunit>I wish I had more time to learn how guix really works instead of just write packages, but life is just so busy.
<civodul>we must also make it more amenable, i guess
<davexunit>NixOS was featured in this month's volume of "Linux (sic) Pro", btw. maybe Guix can make it in, someday.
<civodul>surely ;-)
<civodul>is it a paper magazine?
<jmd>Everyone on this channel should be committed.
<davexunit>civodul: yup
<davexunit>it also had an article about reactive programming, which was cool to see.
<civodul>indeed, that's unusual in this kind of technical magazine
