<lfam>Does anyone know the status of the core-updates build?
<lfam>Since the bugs appear to have been introduced after the version of libarchive on the master branch, I think that no immediate action is required. But, we should be careful to patch the bugs or upgrade libarchive to 3.2.1 (possibly with a graft) before merging core-updates into master.

<mckinley_>I'm trying to use guix import nix; first invoking it, I get `error: Nix database directory ‘/nix/var/nix/db’ is not writable: No such file or directory`. Invoking `nix-instantiate` creates the /nix directory (I'm not sure I should do that); after, invoking `guix import nix`, I get `error: removed 2016-02-29 because unused and broken`
<mckinley_>I'm a little stuck at this point. I do have NIX_REMOTE=daemon, as mentioned in the docs
<mark_weaver>mckinley_: our nix importer hasn't been modified since 2013, and I've not heard of it being used in recent years. it might very well be broken.
<lfam>mark_weaver: I noticed that you grafted libxslt on core-updates. It's strange that it was needed because I updated libxslt on core-updates with 28b33172c. But, I have noticed things like that happening when merging master into core-updates.
<lfam>It makes me worried that we are not noticing other weird things like that
