<jxself>Do they use the idea of the Free Pascal compiler people where you're supposed to download a pre-compiled compiler to compile the compiler?
<bavier>I just got a "guix: Argument list too long" error when trying to do `guix package -i emacs` with a modified (guix build utils) (i.e. re-building most things), and an empty store. My guess is the list of derivations to be built is somehow too big. Is there some way I could get a backtrace from guix?
<mark_weaver>bavier: run "./pre-inst-env guile" from the build directory. then (use-modules (guix scripts package))
<mark_weaver>jgay: what should we do about copying permission notices that attempt to put restrictions on use? e.g. language like "By obtaining, using, and/or copying this software and/or its associated documentation, you agree that you have read, understo\\
<mark_weaver>od, and will comply with the following terms and conditions:"
<mark_weaver>"and that the name of Secret Labs AB or the author not be used in advertising or publicity pertaining to distribution of the software without specific, written prior permission."
<mark_weaver>if someone trusts a summary of "the combined work is gpl3", they would not know about those restrictions.
<mark_weaver>not to mention that they are attempting to say you can't even _use_ the software without agreeing to those restrictions, whereas there's no basis for them to make that demand unless you do something that would violate copyright law, e.g. redistribute.
<mark_weaver>anyway, I'm not a lawyer, so I'll have to punt to someone more knowledgable.
