<roptat>for now, it only gets a manifest from android sources and uses it to learn which repositories to clone; then it clones them all in a directory. next step is to list all Android.bp files, parse them and return a list of packages that build each component.
<roptat>that means writing a blueprint-build-system, and I do have a plan for that :)
<roptat>indeed, we don't have an unbound service type yet, so if you want unbound, you'll need to create the service yourself
<roptat>there's the knot-resolver-service-type that seems to do something similar to unbound though, if you're willing to use something else
***giaptx` is now known as giaptx
<roptat>defining a service is not necessarily too complicated: the easiest way to do it is to follow what the opensmtpd-service-type does: you only provide an option for selecting the package and a configuration file, and you run unbound with that file
<roptat>it's much nicer if you provide an actual record type with all the configuration options, but that'll take more time to create :)
<mdevos>jorge[m]: I believe all you have to do is plug in the cable
<nckx>dftxbs3e: #44778 as written would have to pass through core-updates because it rebuilds 12902 packages (guix refresh -l libffi). It might (and often is) possible to rewrite patches so they have no effect on other architectures, in which case wip-ppc64le could go straight to master *if* it works perfectly. That includes reproducible bootstrap binaries.
<nckx>dftxbs3e: Is there public discussion about their irreproducibility?
<mdevos>jorge[m]: but it has been quite some time ago, I may have forgotten some steps
<nckx>mdevos: Did you have a GNUnet presentation or did I dream that?
<raghavgururajan>Is there a field in package-definition to include a hint message for user?
<raghavgururajan>Like, when a user installs the package, they will see the hint at the end.
<sys2>is anyone else failing to build vhphki5sg9xkdhh2pbc8gi6vhpfzryf0-gnutls-3.6.12 right now? I'm thinking this is because of old packages I've modified and built... but I'm not sure how to remove/update those to the newest versions
