<ng0>would it be useful to use maintainers field, or do we just assume that with a rising number of users and developers people will jump in and fix, update and discuss problems and improvements more often, even when files reach lengths of several thousand loc after years?
<ng0>see just on www.psyced.org/download.html , checkout the .onion overlay .. as I work on this again after a break, I will replicate it once i have a webserver again.
<ng0>but the guix versions you see there might be outdated, depending on if lynX synced again from my .onion or not.
<ng0>rain1: the fun thing with guix from source is also that it install into all kinds of default locations of gentoo, and /gnu/store gets created, but as soon as builders kick in there are issues I can't work out. builders are in the right group, but guix complains they aren't.might be one long emerge guix; emerge --depclean guix; run guix and repeat until i got it
<nee`>Hello, I need a guix environment with a qt-5.5, but 'guix environment' keeps building qt it from source. This PC is slow and it would take until tomorrow. Is there a way to fallback to an older substitute from the server?
<rekado_>nee`: the only way to use older substitutes (if they are still available) is to use an older version of Guix.
<rekado_>I wanted to set up "patches" on my server, but it looks like I won't be able to do this for at least another two weeks.
<rekado_>I don't think a regular meeting would help much.
<davexunit>if more people review, less people will feel like their stuff is forgotten.
<janneke>also, some problems really become less important as time moves by
<davexunit>so for now, it would be great if people could understand our situation. if all of these things were pull requests on github we'd have just as much of a problem because still couldn't review fast enough.
<Acou_Bass>there are plenty of other git-based things that are free ;D
<efraim>there's redmine, which looks like a software-project manager all-in-one
<Acou_Bass>i use gogs for my git needs, though its MIT licensed, not sure if thats free enough :P
<janneke>phant0mas: got a bit further again, now stuck on compiling readline. I found that in the (cross) environment, there is native ld-wrapper0 and native binutils, glibc. These set C_INCLUDE_PATH and configure breaks.
<ng0>on email and having no overview / thing on the list: i just gave up on Gnus for sorting. I will use notmuch for sorting and reply somehow in notmuch or Gnus or combine both. 9000 emails just tells me i need to get rid of what I use now. good thing I can still keep track with guix somehow.
