<efraim>because of the license zfs support has to be compiled in by the end user, it should be easier to add in to guix than other distros
<efraim>and for guix refresh, some sort of lambda replacement with (method url-fetch) and the version number could work to see if there's a new version
<rekado_>"compiled in by the end user" --- do you mean when building the kernel?
<rekado_>(personally, I'd like to have a realtime patched kernel in Guix, but I wouldn't know how to approach this.)
<efraim>i haven't looked at it in a while, but i'm pretty sure the cddl license effectively means you can distribute source but not binaries in relation to the GPL, so if you didn't want zfs-fuse then it would have to be a kernel module
<rekado_>sneek: later tell civodul I don't think we do. If the same mistakes are made over and over again (e.g. wrong case in synopsis, unexplained acronyms, unhelpful descriptions, bad indentation) I don't think we should just shrug and fix this for the contributor.
<rekado>karhunguixi: note that Emacs looks and behaves oddly by default. Many people heavily customised their Emacs and would not be comfortable with a default Emacs (or anyone else's Emacs).
<rekado>karhunguixi: I only stuck with it after three attempts. The first was a default installation, the second with a "starter kit", and finally a custom configuration that evolved as I encountered behaviour I didn't like.
<francis7>csed, I recommend not using the X220. Instead I recommend an X200 with libreboot. If you absolutely must use the X220, check out autoboot.org. autoboot is a blobbed fork of libreboot.
<davexunit>I may install coreboot to get rid of the fully proprietary BIOS, but it won't rid me of blobs.
<DusXMT>ACTION isn't a fan of the emacs all-in-one design. Sure, it's lisp, it's nicely modular, it's configurable, but I'd rather have a lot of small utinities than one big one. That's just a personal opinion though
<francis7>davexunit, mrnuke expressed interest in working on the ME on his T520, which his employer gave to him. (coreboot supports it). same chipsets as the X220. I doubt that the ME issue can be resolved there, though.
<csed>DusXMT: I'd agree that depending on a single tool for as many things as I do (really, a messload) is bad. I'd prefer to use a number of smaller tools, but I always get annoyed by the fact that they're different in some stupid way. Configuration, argument syntax. Hell, I've even seen wonders with return codes.
<davexunit>this is why it makes sense to use a single tool
<csed>That's one of the reasons why I use it, yeah.
<davexunit>emacs is a platform for text-based, keyboard-driven UIs.

<bavier>only comments I have on the patch: 1) is the "c" in the version before the commit hash present in other packages? and 2) the description doesn't seem as "impartial" as I think we're trying to be
