<lfam>If a Python project is releasing tarballs on both Github and PyPi, is there a guideline for which to choose? I find that for a specific version release, the contents of these tarballs are often different.
<efraim>github releases are sometimes just tarballs of the repo at the point in time of the tag
<efraim> also pypi maps nicely with `guix refresh -t pypi`
<lfam>efraim: That makes sense (tarballs of repo). For example, I just packaged python-configobj. The github tarball included the tests in the repo. PyPi tarball did not, but it did have a PKG-INFO file
<civodul>sneek: later tell lfam re PyPi vs. Github, it is best to choose the most complete tarball (the one that includes test, for instance)
<civodul>it's like package.el, but integrated with the rest, which means you can also roll back, etc.
<marusich>So if I install with guix (regardless of whether I use the command line or M-x guix-search-by-name), emacs will find geiser correctly? That's nice. Does emacs look in some predefined locations, and one of those is a place that Guix will install (symlinks to) the actual geiser stuff?
